    Replace gas heater with radiator 16th Nov 19 at 7:06 PM
    Hello,

    No idea if this is the right place to post this, but I've got an old gas heater in my extension, which I'd be interested in replacing with a radiator and hooking it up to the central heating system.

    I'm no expert on this kind of thing and was wondering if this is a) possible, b) easy and c) how much it would roughly cost to do, if anyone here could give an idea?

    Cheers.

    What type of heater?
    Something like a Baxi Brazilia? It can be removed and the gas capped off!
    You can generally link Radiators’s to your system no problem, cost wise depends on type of system (sealed or open vent) concreted floors or floor boards so the cost has massive variances.

    and c) how much it would roughly cost to do, if anyone here could give an idea?

    Cheers.
