Hi everyone, I've just returned from viewing our villa which will be complete in about 8 weeks. I'm mulling over putting central heating in and have had a price from the developer for 3000. It's a three bed villa and already has the pipework as standard so just the boiler and rad's needed. Has anyone got any ideas on prices? I thought 3000 was about 30% over priced.

John.

John did that include the charge for the tank (I assume its gas you've been quoted for) as I believe the deposit for that is around 300. A couple up the road from us decided to go for the double sized gas containers as they think it worked out cheaper.

I know about 4 years ago we were quoted around 4k for central heating but that was the complete thing from start to finish.

Hi, guys. The boiler mentioned was ran on diesel so I'm not too sure how to cost it as It's the first time I've came across it. Surely the rad's can't be that expensive. Karen, I almost gave you a shout for a beer when I was over but we were that busy sorting furniture etc I didn't even have time to see my lawyer. Mabe next time.

John.

Hi Karen,

I would think around 1,800- 2,000 would be a fair price,

Regards,

Paul.

Hello John,



I can recommend Mr Orhan from "Dagsan Solar".

This company is very reliable and their prices are reasonable.



If you want their contact number you can mail me.



Kind regards

Kantara

John,

Do your homework on this:

Our friends have a diesel boiler, costs a fortune to run as you buy diesel here at the pump price (same as for a car) not as a cheaper heating oil like in UK.

At one point over Christmas they were at about about 20quid a day!

If you have a large (1,000 or even 2,000 litre) gas tank, it must be sited 3m from boundary/house/ignition source etc, so plan this. You can then grow climbers over a frame round it, but cannoet enclose with fence.

We have used a tank and a bit this winter, costing around 900ytl in total.

If you decide to go for gas, speak to Argun at Jetgas, speaks perfect English, extreamely helpful 0533 875 6590

Good luck

Brian

And while we are on the subject of central heating, has anyone on this board found 'Fernox' or similar (oxygen scavenger/inhibitor) to put in the heating system to prevent scale/corrosion/sludge etc?

One chap did mention it on villaowners, said he got some just across the border, I assumed he meant the Engomi Homebase, but I can't find any in there.

Cheers

Brian

How large is the property (m2)? How many radiators?



As a rough idea I would say



1000-1500 for the boiler fitted (price depends on quality).

200-250 per radiator fitted



If the underpiping is already in, then you are better getting quotes from various plumbers.

Simma,



2500 max with a good combi boiler (Vaillant). Don't forget that your builder will be putting a mark up on the plumbers price.

simma the fitting of the rads isnt as easy as its back home. The pipes arent copper and therefore need socket fusion welding this piece of kit costs 400.

We bought our 13 rads and boiler over from the uk including of the valves which need extra adaptors to marry to existing pipework.

However 3k does sound excessive i posted a question last year and got phone numbers in realtion. It may be worth looking at historic questions posted by me or lisa

Hi Roy, is it just push fit like in uk and what was the cost of the boiler and rads? What fuel does it burn and where did you purchase?

John.

No Simma, you use the tool to heat up both ends of pipe and they kind of melt/ fuse together, no push fit sockets like uk.
