Have recently applied for grant towards changing our boiler due to its age had phone call from them yes we do qualify but we have to contribute £700 towards it due to the fact we are wanting a combi boiler as against the conventional one we have at the moment , should we go ahead or are they overcharging us

    It depends on the size of your grant.


    Changing from a conventional system to a combi can be an expensive task depending on many factors. Re-siting boiler, removal of cold and hot water tanks etc. Depending on the complexity it can cost £3,000+

    Are you on water meter? If so, prepare for your water bills to double as you twiddle your thumbs wasting water whilst waiting for it to heat up. The savings you make on your gas bill are more than wiped out by the increase in the water bill.

    We aren’t on water meter yet have just moved into the property and the conventional boiler we have now can take 2 minutes before hot water starts running through anyway

    This is the alternatives fuels section (lpg, oil, wood etc). Try posting in the energy forum as that covers gas and electric.
