    I have a Ferroli oil fired boiler for approx 13/14 years and it is working well. However, a couple of people have said to me that I should replace it with an up to date boiler as it is infinately more effecient and cost effective. I would use one fill of oil per year. Any thoughts out there on the merits or otherwise of replacing boiler in near future

    It will be a long way off being infinitely more efficient. Take a look at this SEAI guide.

    A boiler replacement will cost €2000-2500, you might use ~25% less oil. How long will it take to pay back that investment?

    Where's a good place to start looking at buying boilers? Up north worth the trouble?
