- Is the existing gas pipe the right size?
- Is a combi boiler appropriate for my property?

Consider Power Flushing
Over the years your current heating system will have built up dirt and gunk, so really the last thing you want is a brand-new boiler running a dirty heating system as it will be trying to pump hot water through years of built up sludge. It is always worth asking the plumber if power flushing is a service they can offer as this will help towards giving your new boiler the best possible start.
