Hi, would appreciate any thoughts/best suggestions with this.
I have an 8 year old Biassi Riva Plus HE 28 Combi in the garage. Its had a few issues this past year but generally works well .
Thinking of either fixing its existing 2 issues or replacing it with a new one. Prefer the former .
The 2 issues with the boiler at the moment :
When the central heating is on we cant take showers/baths as it cuts out the hot water.
Secondly the flame in the boiler goes out every time there is significant rain or wind or both , meaning we have to go outside and into garage and press reset which re-ignites it until it happens again 30 mins later.
So, If I want to just fix it, should I get a power flush on the 11 rads and then get a Biassi flue extension kit (screwfix )installed, which I think vents higher up, which will hopefully solve the wind/rain issue. Would it solve it ?
Or if I decide to install a new boiler would I have to have a flush anyway as part of installation warranty ? So if I had decided on the fix route and it didn’t work and had to have a new boiler anyway I would have wasted the cost of a power flush as I would in effect be paying twice over. So would just a flush as part of an installation suffice?
Would there not also be an issue of putting a new boiler ( over ) in the location of the old one, still run the risk of the wind/rain affecting the new boiler again. There is no other realistic place to put the boiler.
Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks
