Hi, I've searched this newsgroups for sugegstions on boliers, heat
banks etc but I'm a bit confused as to waht the current "preferred"
I've got a two-bed flat with a regular boiler, sealed CH system and an
unvented hot water cylinder. I like the fact that I have nice showers
but I'm thinking of renting out this flat and am a bit concerned about
having the hassle of the unvented cylinder of unknown origin in terms
of safety and having to get somebody in to "service" it, and also the
boiler is a bit old and I wouldn't mind getting a new one.
All the combi's I've used in the past have been useless in terms of
supplying good hot water. The last one I had used to run for a couple
of minutes with cold water before then supplying very very hot water
(then cold, then hot etc etc).
Are there combis available these days that are good in terms of water
temp consistency and flow? There's probably only ever going to be one
or two people living in this flat at any one time.
I read about heat banks and heat bank conversions - just what is
involved and could I use my existing cylinder for this purpose? Is a
heat bank inefficient seeing as there's not much demand for a lot of
Do all boilers cope with sealed systems these days??
Oh and of course I don't want to spend a lot of money!
