I am buyting a house with an ordinary boiler which is 3yrs old ,do I keep it or go for a combi boiler
A condensing boiler is the more economical way forward and can sae you money over time. If its not broke don't fix it. Always look at the option of having repaired first and the cost and then way up the difference to having a new one. We can provide a 9 year warranty with full peace of mind on some boilers. and there are boilers on the market to accommodate good value for money with a standard 5 year warranty. Always ask to check weather the installer is GAS SAFE REGISTERED.

Depends on size of house and quantity of bathrooms. Combination boilers maximum of two bathrooms.
All depends on how many radiators you have and how many bathrooms you have.
It depends if the old boiler is running perfectly or not
its up to you but it will pay in the long run because they are very good on fuel as it only uses gas when you turn the hot water on and goes of when you turn the tap off its the same when using the heating and there you are not boiling a tank full of water and letting it cool then boiling again when you need a bath
I would suggest going for a combi boiler for economical purposes. Most consumers would normally opt for a combi nowadays for that very reason.
check out its energy rating before you waste your money on replacement as it can cost you 1500 -2000 pounds
Most Combi boilers are green house savers. You must have a gas safe engineer to carry out any gas work.
Best fuel saver is the traditional system rather than the combo, with combo start to become difficult when wanting ensuites with good flow rates on shower, with the combos always will have issues when drawing more than one tap.
They is no ordinary boiler and the best advice is to get a gas safe registered engineer to check it.
Most efficient is a Combi Boiler
Keep it unless you need the space, efficiency is the same but you will get a better hot water supply from a boiler with hot water cylinder plus they are more reliable.
