Our boiler was condemned by British Gas (not unexpected) so they've quoted us for a new one. We have two local independents coming round to give us quotes also.
Our boiler is conventional but since we might extend at some point in the coming years I thought it might be a good opportunity to get rid of the tanks and go with a combi - this would allow us to knock through the airing cupboard when funds permit.
The BG bloke said combi's can't really manage more than one bathroom, and that they're pretty rubbish overall for a medium sized house. I had one in a flat years ago and would broadly agree, but surely the technology has moved on a bit by now? Our water pressure is good.
We have friends with a 5 bed, 3 bath house who recently had a combi put in and they have no issues with it, so is BG telling porkies for some reason? I'm naturally suspicious of anyone that is trying to sell me something (invited or not).
I'm happy to go with a conventional boiler, and will see what the indy's recommend, but thought I'd seek advice in the meantime from the font of knowledge that is STW.
Edit: I should add that I have no additional details of the friends combi so I could have bad information (via the wife) or maybe they bought some super duper expensive model.
