My lovely old oil fired boiler has gone bung according to my very good Chauffagistes.
I can’t remember the brand - starts with O - I’m not there at present - it happened when friends were there briefly. I can’t get back there (the virus) so can’t I access the handbook etc
I’ve had it serviced every year in spite of not using it much and was always assured it was in good fettle.
My Chauffagist says ‘buy a new one’ - 8,000 Euros min. I cant afford / justify that.
They tell me the burner and transformer (an integrated unit perhaps) is broken and no parts available. I’m thinking what happened to ingenuity, repairs (remember that?) sourcing used spare parts or even sourcing a used but working order boiler?
Fortunately I have a new wood burner - even more fortunate I’m not there at present.
But I like my central heating with its ancient radiators and plumbing so am determined to keep it - but not at any cost.
Any (polite) suggestions?
