I needs some advice.

We are thinking of moving to Boston Spa as I now have a job in Leeds, after 4 years working in Hull. We have seen a really nice cottage we both like, the only issue is that it has a hard fuel boiler. As anyone got experience of these? Are they economical or a right pain in the backside?

Thanks

My parents have got one. To be honest it's a doddle, one bucket if anthracite per day and a pull of the handle each morning and that's about it for a warm house and hot water. They replaced the 1970s one the other year and don't regret it one bit.

I had a solid fuel fire for years that ran off sun-bright doubles (looks like coke) excellent system, plenty of hot water and the radiators  where banging, once you get into the routine of emptying the ashes once a day they're a doddle and you have the bonus of a nice glowing fire.

Are they a pain in summer though, when you don't really need to fire buring?

Either turn it off and heat the water on electric, or just turn down the airflow.

My sister's just had wood pellet central heating installed.  

 

Like solar panels, you can get a bit of installation money off the government as a 'renewable heat incentive'.
