    Hi there - I have a Worcester Greenstar 25Si combi boiler running our heating rads. I've recently added a small tank with a heating element powerd by solar into the rads circuit.

    New build heating engineer needs pointing in the right direction.

    Hi, I have a vaillant ecotec plus boiler (pre 2012 model) that is giving me hot water issues. It points towards a hot water heat exchanger issue or diverter valve, but I have replaced the diverter valve (old one seemed to still operate as it should as well) so it would seem that wasn't the issue...

    Combi boiler issue or Shower?

    Hi Yesterday my shower in the bathroom started to run cold. It started fine but then ran cold...then got warm again before running cold again. This continued and then just ran cold.

    Ideal Combi hot water but noi heating

    Hi all. Daughter's boiler again thanks for help last year. New problem - hot water works fine, but when calls for heat boiler starts and runs for a few seconds then stops. No error messages. My thought is that pump is inop, so boiler starts up but then switches off when the small amount of...
