    New B&Q lied installation savings 10th Mar 15 at 11:07 AM
    I have been looking for a new boiler to be installed in my flat for some months now. As I have been close to freezing over winter, while it keeps playing up and on the odd ocasion not even turning on.

    I have found when looking round they are quite expensive, I just don't have the money to pay in full for a new boiler. I searched in Google to see if there was such a thing as pay monthly for a new boiler. And there is!
    I found this tool that was really helpful www.plumbcare.com/boiler-finance/ it gave me a savings calculator to use and told me what I would save per month getting a new boiler.

    It's a handy tool, that's why I thought I would share it with you all.
    Hope it helps.

    You would be cheaper taking out a bank loan or possibly extending your mortgage

    Apart from being a duplicate post, what has this got to do with B&Q lying?
    I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

    Sorry for the duplication I saw my autocorrect had changed Boiler to B&Q so tried amending it.
    This post has nothing to do with B&Q

    Well look at some of the interest rates - Yes I did it a few years ago and extended my mortgage where the interest rate was a lot lower than a bank loan or credit agency.


    All you have to do is get several quotations (preferably not from BG) to find out how much it's going to cost and then have a scan round the internet to see how cheaply you could borrow the money. You could probably borrow it all and not even have to pay a deposit. You might even get a better deal from the plumber as well as you aren't going to be borrowing from him.


    I don't know your circumstances but it's worth having a look rather than jumping straight in with a credit agreement with a supplier
