Glad you are getting organised Katie. I had to replace the boiler a few years ago, it is not cheap

well I wouldn't know about that! (re warm woman)

Still, I've learnt from this experience........going to make sure I have lots of heaters in future, plus extra duvets and some fuel for the fire (didn't have any in as thought we were moving and i'd cleaned and blacked the grate and everything) and hot water bottles. We're so dependent on central heating that we forget we used to get by very well without it......

well the boiler is ten years old, and I think they last 15 on average, so I hope it lasts a bit longer

That is too true Katie. I can remember as a child the newspapers being rolled up to put into the grate with the turf to start a fire.

I moved into this house 23 years ago and the central heating was already in a few years ....and it's still the same boiler and heating system ..they were built to last then.....last time we had it serviced the guy said he'd never heard of or seen the boiler before .........it doesn't owe us anything at this stage
