i need the advise of the group it concerns my central heating and my
local housing association the facts are like this 2 years ago the housing
group renewed all of my streets heating system etc , apart from ours the
reason they said ours was not done is because it was a realitively new back
boiler and did not need replacing the back boiler is a housewarmer 2 made by
potterton myson as far as i am aware this boiler is around the 65% mark of
the energy efficiency when guidelines are i think around 78% when we
approached housing they said these are only guidelines and not law to cut it
short we are due a modernisation soon and it involves new bathrooms new
kicthens etc we just dont want to be upside down soon after they finish
because if they were to finish every thing then decided our boiler needed
updating they would have to rip our kitchen out again in order to fit the
combi system please are there any top notch people who know there stuff to
help us with this problem cheers !!!!!!!!!

In that case you should at least make it easy for those attempting to
help you by writing in a way that they can easily follow.
Contributors to this NG (some of whom are professionals) provide help
and advice using their time. People are happy to do this and enjoy
helping others. Wasting their time in having to make sense of your
post because you can't be bothered to spend a few minutes using some
punctuation and capital letters is not likely to get you the response
that you might like.
It would also behove you to read about Usenet etiquette and not to top

This a correction to my earlier post. I take back what I said earlier.
(I never read the OP.) You are obviously a prick that does not deserve
my easy going frame of mind.
And the punctuation is atrocious. You can't even count and they look
like exclamation marks to me -not that I'm interested.
But only of relevance when the boiler is replaced. The OP said
that the HA who owns his place said that as the back boiler was
relatively new they would not replace it.
Having said this, it is nonsensical to be throwing public money
at totally uneconomic solar panel schemes when a much lesser
amount spent here (given that the kitchen and bathroom are being
redone) would save a lot more energy.

Tony thanks for the advice on my posting, also the time spent reading my
Another thing I forgot to mention was that the back boiler has been
recently power flushed, by the housing association but still there is no
change in its behaviour, for example I was working in the loft when I heard
a very large noise coming from the tank, so I lifted the off to see a large
amount of very hot water spurting from a pipe into what I think is the
expansion tank, also the water was spilling over the top and into the hot
water which we use for bathing etc.
So would all those chemicals put into the system have been spilled into our
hot water, and would that explain why we still have the banging noises etc.
Well I hope this is readable for you and once again thank you for seeing a
true problem even if it was through a lot of bad punctuation.
