Our old boiler had worked fine for decades but my wife liked the idea of a smaller and more efficient boiler so we got a Worcester combi boiler. It was certainly smaller but the increased efficiency now meant we needed to add a radiator to the airing cupboard to dry cloths as the boiler doesn't give out enough heat by itself.
The combi boiler also puffs out steam along the side of my house and both my own and my neighbors window frames are starting to rot - large bills expected here. It also didn't come with a thermostat on the walls so now we need to manually turn off the heating in the house. The funny thing is my bills haven't been any cheaper with this new efficient boiler, if anything I'm paying more!
At the moment though, I have the boiler switched off - not to save money but because water is dripping constantly out the back of it and into buckets arranged around the place. I'm hoping I can keep the buckets going before the ceiling is affected downstairs. The Worcester engineer is coming tomorrow to fix it but the bill is £360!
