Landlords need to be sharp

Landlords it's a jungle out there!

My new tenants have just moved into my terrace house buy-to-let. The boiler - a Worcester 24i fires up and produces hot water but no heat in the radiators.

A call to the my regular plumber. His subsequent diagnosis was that the PCB had gone. No surprise there. It's a common problem with the 24i. He then gave me a quote for the replacement £340. A lot cheaper than replacing the entire boiler.

"Ok go ahead and do it"

As soon as I came off the phone I thought £340 that's a lot. I checked a recent article. Then it was on the internet and I found a site theheatexchange and the same part was available at £125 online direct from Worcester.

It's a jungle out there - stay sharp!
