Hi My house has warm air central heating using gas and my gas bill is about
£350 a year. I also use gas for cooking and hot water and have a power
shower connected to the hot water tank. Has anyone ever done a comparison on
costs, or replaced their warm air central heating with radiators and is
there, as I have been told, a significant cost saving of gas, if replacing
the warm central heating with radiators?
If I got a new heating system etc would I still be able to use my power
shower or will that have to be changed also?
The heating was installed when the house was built in 1991 and I have lived
in it since new. I ask because I just had it serviced by Scottish Gas and
the engineer said it is getting near the end of it's life and did I want
Scottish Gas to give me a quote for a replacement system using radiators. If
I did decide to replace it, it would not be with Scottish Gas.
Thinking about the cost of a service contract anyway I have paid Scottish
Gas about £100 a year since 1993 and if I had radiators, if something went
wrong with the plumbing I could easilly get that fixed (relative a plumber)
and just pay an engineer if there was something wrong with the gas so would
not need a service contract, another saving.
I live in Scotland if it is relevant
Thanks for any info Ronald
