Re: Oil Fired Warmflow Boiler Central Heating not Working Correctly

Hi Eric, again thanks and apologies for my delay in responding, I took myself off on a short break. Its a pity I took 20 years to try and resolve this, if it had of been in the first 10, I could have got the house builder back. I may be able to find the original plumber who installed the system, but...

Re: Oil Fired Warmflow Boiler Central Heating not Working Correctly

Hi Eric Thanks for a very comprehensive reply. From my limited knowledge I must have at least one motorised valve. Using my logic, when I press the hot water button on my control unit, only the hot water boiler heats. When I press the Central heating boiler, the heat comes on. How does the central h...
