Hard Fuel Boiler

6 posts in this topic

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.
