Gas Boiler Heating Install in SE25
Posted 9 September 2017
Job Description:
Heating engineer required to fit Worcester Bosch Greenstar 24i boiler and Telford Tempest Indirect Cylinder. Our current heating system is fitted inside the 1st floor bathroom – a Baxi Solo 2 50 PF boiler with indirect copper water cylinder and a monsoon water pump connected to the 2nd floor bathroom. It is working but old, inefficient, noisy and provided insufficient water pressure for the 1st floor bathroom. The current exhaust vent is also situated too close to a bedroom window. I have decided to have fitted a Worcester Bosch boiler with a Telford Tempest 250L Indirect Solar cylinder fitted in the 1st floor bathroom. I already possess a used and working Worcester Bosch Greenstar 24i in excellent condition. Although several years old, it has only had 2 years of use. This was donated to me by my mother who had an extension built and she wanted a Combi boiler instead. This boiler was disconnected still in great working order (I trust my mother!) and left on her wall under the stairs. I removed it from that wall 2 years ago and it has been sitting in my spare room waiting. I have checked that this boiler is indeed sufficient to heat both my entire house and the 250L Telford cylinder in an adequate amount of time. I have the original fitters instruction manual for your reference. A horizontal flu extension also needs to be fitted to this boiler to carry flu gases away from the current location. All that is required for purchase in addition is 2 x horizontal (1000mm long by 60 / 100mm wide) and 1 x 90 degree bend. I have located the correct parts and they are still available for purchase. I am now searching for a professional heating engineer to fit this. The cheapest price I can find my chosen Telford cylinder for is £635.25 on eBay. Perhaps you can get me a better price? I would like to install some plywood underneath the boiler and cylinder immediately after the present system has been removed to match the surrounding floor and make it a level surface for the cylinder. I can to do this work myself on a Tuesday evening (I already have all the materials needed to complete this and I am confident I can do it as I have already done the rest of the bathroom floor). Ideally, the work needs to be begun on a Tuesday and finished the next day on a Wednesday. If more time is required – arrangements can be made my end. The bathroom is mostly empty (bath, toilet and sink removed) with plenty of room to do the job. There is however the remains of an old airing cupboard still in place which cannot be removed at present because it supports the Monsoon water pump. This wood needs pulling out on the day of the job. I am happy to purchase the Telford and the flue extensions once I have found someone to fit everything. The engineer should at least supply the copper pipe / end feed fittings, etc. The job is otherwise ready for viewing, quotations and commencement at the earliest opportunity.
