    I’m looking at installing an Ideal boiler to replace an old Glow Worm heat only boiler. I have had several quotes, but I have been told that I need to have my controller upgraded, plus they want to rip the walls apart and make it a “smart system”. Then charge the Earth for it. When asked why all this is necessary I have been told it’s Regulations and spiel about something called Boiler plus which seems like a scam. I have decided to do the install myself the main gas run from the meter is 22mm which I will be keeping and replacing all boiler pipework from under the floor boards above the boiler except the gas pipe which will be staying. I will be keeping old control panel and also fitting a Walliams filter on the return pipe going to boiler, I have purchased a Kane gas analyser to commission boiler once fitted. I have Read about fitting a gas boiler and feel I’m confident in carrying out the work myself, I have come to these forums for a boiler recommendation and any tips that could help.Thanks

  4. You're likely going to kill yourself, your family and your immediate neighbours.
    If I found out my neighbour had come up with this brain dead idea I'd go ballistic.

    The chances of somebody who fits them every week having something go wrong is just the same as me who is fitting one for the first time. I have the know how to fit one, so don’t even try and make out I’m somebody who doesn’t have a clue what I’m at. I have read up on the subject before going into it.

    Not likely, as who is going to know? Anybody could have fitted said boiler, when it gets serviced next and they was to ask who installed it. I’d just just say I got a plumber to do it.

    Will the boiler guarantee and any warranty be honoured. for your boiler choice a warranty is a very good idea ;)

    Good luck selling the house when the time comes, but no doubt you have the answer for that as well eh.

    And why is that? Because it’s not going to have wifi connected controls, with attached gimmicks?
