A boiler is a closed vessel in which fluid (generally water) is heated. The fluid does not necessarily boil. The heated or vaporized fluid exits the boiler for use in various processes or heating applications, including water heating, central heating, boiler-based power generation, cooking, and sanitation.
Not an expert at all here, so please bear with me.
We bought a Victorian terraced house early 2 years ago that was maintained quite well, with a heating system consisting of UFH on the bottom floor with its own manifold and each room being a zone. We also have 5 radiators (2 aluminium cast)...

My Worcester Bosch boiler works for the central heating system but doesn’t turn on for hot water. On the boiler the chimney sweeper icon is flashing and then 100. Not sure what this means or what I need to do? Can anyone advise as I’m clueless
The copper gas pipe to my boiler in the loft runs between joists and sits on the plasterboard. I understand that it should not be covered by insulation. Why? Is it satisfactory to create a dome over the pipe with upside down guttering and then put fibreglass insulation over the top please?
Hi - I'm a homeowner, not a DIY person.
My 20 year old Gloworm boiler needs replacing.
British Gas quote is ok at £6100 for a 24kw replacement -valiant ecofit 625 system boiler. The tank/heat exchanger and copper pipework bring the price up.
OK so I object (rightly or wrongly) for the extra...
I have a Viessmann Vitogas 100, installed about 17 years ago by a previous homeowner. It also is the boiler for hot water, so it runs all summer in hot water only mode. I’ve turned the heating component back on, but it’s not working properly. It would appear the circulation pump stops working...
Hi. New Baxi 619 heat boiler installed last week. Type with a hot water cylinder.
Lots of water / gurgling sounds when hearing switched on. Plus the boiler ignites and stays on for approx 10 minutes then switches off. Then comes back on after a few minutes.... this cycle repeats.

Hi - this is driving me nuts and I can’t figure it out so any thoughts welcome.
The hive receiver at the boiler is correctly receiving a signal from the thermostat to turn the heating on - but then… nothing! This definitely isn’t a hive communication issue given (a) the hot water via hives...
We're having an extension done at the moment and our contract with our builder covers the cost to relocate our existing boiler in to our new utility room.
After builder had boiler inspected, it turns out we can't move the boiler because it's "illegal" as too old to be made safe. As a...
I'm considering changing our current Conventional/Regular Gas boiler, to a Combi.
The main reason for doing this, is so that I can run a more effiecent shower.
eg: With a better temparture control, combined with a better flow rate.
But in order to get a combi with a good hotwater...
I'm a Worcester man.
Hello! Anyone still there?....
I tried viessmann to up the efficiency and altho the boiler was nice, I couldn't live with their stupid vicare stat and lack of control and I'm a big believer in matched controls.
