Do we have any plumbers with Combi boiler experience online?
I've just had a new combi boiler installed by the council and its using loads of gas.
Correct me if I am wrong, but I was informed that the new combi boilers are meant to be cheaper to run then the conventional boiler.
Before they done anything, I was using around £40 a month on gas, and the mrs is always "cold" ( i just put a jumper on or something ) so its usually always on and the termistat (sp) is as high as you can turn it.
Since thursday gone, we have used just over £10 and i've only had it turned on when we really need it. If I leave it turned on, you can litterally see the numbers spinning and the money dropping (prepay).
Is this normal? We know other people that say they use less money then they did before and their houses are like sauna's.
