Thanks Shemps

What's the website. Thanks.

sounds good if you have used them are they

friendly and their customer service good.... or they don't have hard sell policy for other of their services or goods

Says "if your boiler is not working" How do you get round that?

Basically another hand out for none workers.

Where is the catch?

And this boiler they fit, what make is it?

There are some excellent boilers on the market, there are some dreadful ones. A FREE brand new boiler might sound like great idea but what are the long term costs?

Lets take a scenario. Fred has an old system boiler. It heats the central heating system and provides hot water via a cylinder (usually in an 'Airing Cupboard' on the top floor of the house). Fred's boiler has failed to light today. Unlike a new Condensing Combi Boiler which is fired via a piezo, Fred's System Boiler uses a pilot light. Fred can see the pilot light is not lit. He tries to relight it and although it stays lit while he keeps the gas valve open by pressing the button, it extinguishes upon depressing the button. It would appear that the thermocouple has failed (it doesn't matter what a thermocouple is, we're just using this as an example). A universal thermocouple part costs around £7 with a fitting time of approximately 30 mins to 1 hour depending on the system. It's a part that every gas engineer should carry within his parts pack (as mentioned, it's a universal part and therefore will fit almost all boilers). So the total cost to fix Fred's boiler will be around £40 to £50 possibly a little more within central London. Now consider the same fault within a Condensing Combi Boiler (for those unaware, it does not operate via a thermocouple). The piezo may be firing but the boiler is not lighting. We know there's no thermocouple, what could the fault be? Well there may be a number of reasons, anything from a fan switch to the gas valve. It could be a PCB problem (that's the little Printed Circuit Board inside your new boiler, that operates/controls everything within the boiler). In essence, the problem will need to be diagnosed. Yes both problems needed a diagnosis but a System Boiler is a Mechanical beast, the amount of parts that can fail is fairly few, the number of parts that can fail/go wrong on a Condensing Combi Boiler is much greater, it's mechanical beast controlled by a computer. If the computer says no, it's no and you need a highly competent engineer to start fault diagnosis and fix. Time is the element here. If the engineer is highly competent he/she may be able to diagnose and fix your boiler within a short space of time, if he/she isn't, it may be a long process before they get to a fix. Some boiler manufactures have their own team of guys, they know the boilers, they know the faults so they're usually pretty quick to identify and fix. Some times it can be a process of elimination, taking out parts and installing new until they hit the fault. Big manufacturers can do this, they have the resources, small independent guys can't. The point is, like a new car with it's 'Engine Management System', new boilers have become complex and with complexity comes problems. I'm ALL for the new Condensing Combi Boilers, they're highly efficient and WILL save you money over a conventional System Boiler (over time due to their efficiency and thus lower gas running costs), the only caveat is, get a good one. Again, like new cars (there are some, take the Freelander for instance, it was dogged with problems in it's first release, it's fantastic now), there are great manufacturers and there are some not so great. I won't advise here. A quick google will give you reviews and feedback but all I'm saying is find out what boiler they're fitting. The site in the link has a Worcester Bosch logo, if they're fitting them, you won't go far wrong, they're generally very good boilers. Vaillant are also very good.

I know 'old school' engineers who haven't the first clue about new boilers and don't want to know. Some have left the industry, some are struggling within it. You may get a great engineer and he/she is worth their weight in gold. If you find one, keep him/her locked in a cupboard!

Terms and conditions pretty much rule that out.

Good to see how people are so quick to make comments before reading the deal/offer.

I am a hater cos I am sick of working and getting less out of it than those who don't work. Not everyone claiming benefits are claiming fairly and the jobless includes the feckless not just people between jobs. Why do I have to fork out money for a new boiler and they don't. I live in East Durham so I know all about the benefit class.

Edit.. This is not the place to vent my anger .. have removed my post..

Not to say there are not deserving cases. Just hope they are well and truly means and health tested before these handouts are given ..

I wonder what the savings in expenditure would be if all of these ridiculous schemes, quangos, free passes for this or that, and all of this superfluous stuff ceased? The administration costs must be enormous too.

Welfare should be simple and thoroughly means tested. A thousand different things that you can possibly get a grant for or get for free if you are in receipt of this, that, or the other just complicates things, obscures things, costs a mint to administer, and causes resentment amongst those who do not qualify for any of these schemes yet ultimately fund them for others.

The transparency alone to the figures in and out of the public purse would be worth it. Monies not apportioned through a thousand different grants, funds or departments could always be reapportioned to the truly needy (before anyone jumps up and calls me a hater...)

Wow, easy to see the readers (?) of the Daily Heil here. Perhaps they could go after George Osborne, who claimed for a paddock on taxpayers' expense, or Ian Duncan Smith who recently put in a claim for a £36 breakfast. Most of these credits are actually claimed by people in work, which seems to escape the hard of thinking.

Where is the catch?


if you work & earn to pay your way, you can't have this freebie, you just get the joy of paying for everyone elses.

Erm, to get working tax credits you need to be working a minimum of 16hours, which would imply you dont need to be out of work to qualify for this. Some people only read what they want to read and ignore the rest. Quit moaning

I will ignore some of the comments made about handouts to scroungers, it angers me putting every one into one basket, if one apple is rotten it doesn't rot the rest of the apples if you pick the healthy ones out of the basket in time and use them......

When I used to sign on some 20yrs ago I used to feel degraded and wanted to come out of that vicious cycle but those horrible employers used to say sorry no experience no job.... the Job center was never helpful just wanted to curse me for not doing enough and staff treating me as SC*M of the gutter, Guess what I took all sorts of jobs even Clinical waste collectors in hospital, since then I respect all sorts of work force, luckily the local college advertised a IT course with work experience, never looked back and God help I never went back in between my temp jobs just to avoid them(Staff) even though I am entitled to it..... I am sure they must have saved a lot in all those years.

Yes I know there are people who are taking this for granted and will abuse the Authority but there are not enough of them to drain the pot.... we need to help those who don't like to claim because they feel degraded and try and fish out the abusers..... not poke fun at all of them....

** Editied deleted my personal anger here**

Update @ 16.23

I just saw MikBak comments for taking his comments out so I apologies for posting my comments it took me some 15min to type thi,s not a Seceratry with 100words/min

I have edited it to mellow it down as well but left the jest of the message to make it just..... it wasn't written to get at one person but all those who think all disabled/unemployed are scroungers.....

Pathetic. You're saying that people on low incomes who have young kids, and no working Boiler should just freeze then??

I seriously hope I never become as callous and uncaring as you obviously are.

And Yes.... I DO work, I qualify for absolutely no forms of assistance, handouts etc.... but I certainly don't begrudge them to people who are genuinely in need.

Pathetic is the key word here.

Help link are also doing this..... the people that have the adverts in with Johnny Ball

help-link.co.uk/aff…mth

So lets see:

DO YOU OR SOMEONE IN THE HOUSE RECEIVE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS.

YES: THEN YOU QUALIFY FOR THIS INITIATIVE FOR THE FREE REPLACEMENT BOILER

PENSION CREDITS Person obviously worked for at least 20 years
CHILD TAX CREDITS Just because you have a child doesn't mean you dont have a job
WORKING TAX CREDITS In order to receive this you need a??? oh yeah a job
DLA Soldier blown up on operations can no longer work will get this
EMPLOYMENT SUPPORT ALLOWANCE no idea who this is for
INCOME SUPPORT : CHILD UNDER 16 again you may still have a job
JOB SEEKERS ALLOWANCE : CHILD UNDER 16 at least they are looking for a job

Yes there are a lot of people sponging on the dole and the amount they get needs to be drastically reduced in order to warrant them NEEDING to get a job because from personal experience a single mother (im not one) is far better off sponging than working. Quick maths:

On the dole: rent £300, council tax £100, handout of over £480, child tax £80= £960 a month roughly

Working min wage, you then need to find a job that pays over £13000 to cover all the above AND then find money to possibly pay for child care.

Heat from me

Heated.

PENSION CREDITS Person obviously worked for at least 20 years "How are pensioners spongers who have worked on low income all their life and can't get enough SPA PC's are a relief in todays increasing price above the inflation"
CHILD TAX CREDITS Just because you have a child doesn't mean you dont have a job "A couple who has even one child I am not counting mum wiht 16kids how many of them are there in the world"
WORKING TAX CREDITS In order to receive this you need a??? oh yeah a job "A childless parent earning <£13k I think is not much now a days..... A Child who needs child care but low earners can't take the job because Child Care will take the big part of the wage and if you don't get any benefits to cover the basics just so that you can get back on the step ladder and still be able to look after the child I think is a good insentive"
DLA Soldier blown up on operations can no longer work will get this "What the hell are you talking about if these hard working soldiers didn't go out and fight you wouldn't be here saying what you are saying I think the Soldiers deserve more than the measley amount they are getting and that is RESPECT from us"
EMPLOYMENT SUPPORT ALLOWANCE no idea who this is for WHAT IS ESA
INCOME SUPPORT : CHILD UNDER 16 again you may still have a job "A Child who needs child care but low earners can't take the job because Child Care will take the big part of the wage and if you don't get any benefits to cover the basics just so that you can get back on the step ladder and still be able to look after the child I think is a good insentive"
