Central Heating\which combi boiler?

We've just moved to a new house(4bed detached) and in the process of changing the boiler for a combi and getting rid of the hot water tank (thru the boiler scrappage scheme).
Three plumbers have given us a quote, and we're a bit confused as they have suggested different things!!
Could anyone help?
Firstly, the boiler. Which is better?: Gloworm 38cxi combi or Baxi Duotec 38HE combi (does this one exist? should it be 40HE?)
Secondly the radiators/thermostats: At the moment we have 12 Radiators all with thermostats, and a room thermo in the lounge. One plumber said to keep them as they are, but another has said that we only need thermostats upstairs.
Thirdly, Timers. which is best to have? Mechanical clock, Electric timer or RF remote clock?
Finally (phew!), one plumber has suggested a having a filter installed near the boiler. ?????
Thank you in advance

    they do others which might fit your price range better that are just as good also you will have to look at flow rate on the dhw side

After moving my gas meter from inside the home to outside and having a semi concealed meter connected we cant get the combi boiler to work properly we can get hot water and have the gas fire on but


your boiler needs a minimum gas pressure of 16 mb to light successfully. if your gas pipe has been extended it has to be able to flow enough gas. it may need upgrading to 28mm for even as little as a metre from the gas meter. if your central heating works ok when the fire is off then this is your problem

My Baxi Combi 80e boiler turns the heating on randomly. With the wall thermostat turned down and even with the boil switched to hot water only the heating still fires up when unwanted.


If the thermostat wire run passes anywhere through, beside or inside any metal surfaces and the wires touch any of the metal its the same as if you turn the stat to on. I've seen this a few times. Easiet way to detect it, if its inside the house is at night in the dark. Look around when its doing this you may see the small spark when it goes on. Otherwise you will need to inspect the entire run from the stat to the untis, etc.

Re: combi boiler.


if you have hot water at the taps but the heating isn't working make sure the thermostat is set high enough for the boiler to run check the time clock settings are on.
if these are working it could be a faulty diverter valve switch not sending a signal to the boiler to run.
