I am 73 years old, in sound mind and body, and cold.Even my dog shivers at night when we go to bed. Why, you might ask, the answer is no heating and no hot water. Oh what joy. I had a wonderful new central heating system installed 7 years ago by good old British Gas. Unfortunately the boiler they recommended is the worst boiler ever made. A fact I have since verified by searching the web. My existing boiler cover was cancelled, presumably because the boiler is not worth repairing. OK, First point of call British Gas, not interested. OK, Next point of call, Ideal. Slightly better luck, they came and repaired it free of charge. Telling me it was a one off repair, it lasted all of 3 weeks. OK. on to the government scheme to replace boilers free of charge. Numerous failures here. The boiler is not old enough. I do not have the right benefits, not applicable to my home, etc. Other options, bank loan, nope. 0% finance card, nope. Equity release, nope. Well, no one can say I didn't try. So, here we are back at square one. 73 years old, sound in mind and body, and COLD! Roll on summer. Rant over. Irene.
