I moved to a rural part of Wales in 2002, after leaving the Armed forces. As you can imagine the property prices were extortionate, so I had to sacrafice the luxuries such as CENTRAL HEATING and DOUBLE GLAZING, in order to get a roof over my head.

After the move and I had settled down a little and more importantly saved some cash, the time was upon me to get central heating (after double glazing).

As there is no mains gas supply in the village where I live the options I had were either OIL, LPG (bottled gas), or SOLAR.

As tempting as the solar option was, I simply couldn't afford it or I would have. The other options OIL or LPG would mean a huge gas tank or an oil tank somwhere in my garden. As there are minimum distances the LPG tank has to be from property boundaries I decided to investigate into oil.

There were no guidelines as to where the oil tank is placed, so it went at the bottom of the garden (which will be covered by trellis ONE DAY). The Combi boiler has been put into a small room I had uner the stairs and never used apart from hoarding stuff. In all i have 9 radiators and instant hot water 24/7.

The main advantage with oil is because you need to fill the tank up, you actually pay for the oil before you use it. So there's no bill landing on my doormat on 27th December after another expensive christmas with the gas fire and heating on.

Last year I filled my tank once costing £157.00 in March, and i expect to re-fill in a month or two.

Oh Yeah there's also NO STANDING CHARGES.

Kospel Electric Central Heating Flow Boiler Heater Installation Hot Water 6kW Power

Kospel EKCO.LN2 electric central heating flow boilers are designed for wet central heating ... more

installations and hot water cylinders. It's
equipped with an expansion vessel (Capacity: 6
litres) and the differential pressure relief valve
(Bypass). They can either operate as an
independent source of heat or cooperate with other
boilers. The application of the proper control
system ensures high heat comfort, nearly
maintenance free work as well as the possibility
of individual setting adjustment. The quick system
reaction to the changes of temperature together
with the automatic 6-stage power modulation
ensures the maximum efficiency in the power
consumption. Features: Panel control - electronic
control board enures regulation of water
temperature in central heating installation
between 20°C do 85°C; Power board - consists of
electronic and semiconductor elements to ensure
