My parents have a holiday cottage, which contains a Rayburn Royale.
It's currently fuelled by coal, but they are considering changing to
The idea would be to run the Rayburn on the lowest setting
continuously (heating the water, but not radiators) and turn it up to
operating temperature when they get there at weekends.
I realise these are "how long is a length of string" questions, but
they just want a rough idea of the costs involved.
I've got a couple of questions about this:
1) LPG; can you turn this off between visits to the cottage? If not,
how much would it cost to run if set to "minimum" heat output?
2) If converted to oil, how much would it cost if left on the lowest
They have been quoted £200 for the parts for a coal-oil conversion,
and £300 for fitting them!
