New boiler?

Post  SamMc on Mon May 14, 2012 3:20 am

We have a Pulsacoil 2000, it's almost 6 years old and it's always breaking down. At the moment it doesn't heat up overnight and is cold to the touch. Thankfully we are able to use the boost to heat up enough water to take a shower but it's an expensive way to operate long term. We're getting the Gledhill engineers out again this week but what I really want to know is how much a new boiler would cost? What is the best type of boiler to get? We live in a 2-bed apartment and hot water is usually scarce, I take a shower daily and my daughter has a bath but that's as much as we get. Is this normal? I'm sick of boiling the kettle to wash the dishes!

Thanks in advance!

Sam.

Depends on what size your unit is.
Builders / developers nearly always undersize them.
Pulsacoil 2000 are not a bad unit.
2 heaters one for emergency which you are using.
Bottom one is off peak.
Each heater has a stat.
Then there are 2 sensors and a pump.
And a pump drive PCB
All linked to providing hot water.
But as your unit is cold looks like bottom heater or stat.
Checked the water level lately?
Replacement and an easy change would be the Gledhill Pulsacoil BP unit.
Only has 2 heaters with stats of course.
And a blending / mixer valve for the hot water.
Very simple.

Thanks Mike. The water level is fine, just waiting for the husband to book us in with Gledhill response. I shall do some research on the Pulsacoil BP in the meantime.

Thanks again!

We're in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire. Somebody's coming out on Wednesday, we have one of those extended warranty things.

Hi Sam,

You've already most likely resolved your issue. I want you to get a copy of this self check guide which may help you in the future if your Pulsacoil becomes faulty. You can request it via this link: Pulsacoil 2000
