309 Questions: Gas Work
My pipework and plumbing are fine but I need the boiler replaced. Can someone recommend a make / model that will give me the most bang for my buck?

We had central heating installed last Sept and when we started using it a month or so later, there was loud knocking sound from several radiators, this usually happens when one is turned down a bit, the rest start banging.
We called the plumber who fitted it And eventually he came out and had a look, he said it was something in one of the particular radiators which needed replacing (a valve maybe? I had just had a baby at this time so can't recall exactly!!). I did think this odd as all the radiators were making this banging noise but I'm not a plumber! He came back as replaced a part but the noise continued. Despite subsequent attempts to contact this man, he ignores all of our calls and texts. He was very ad hoc when he came to fit the heating (disappearing for days mid job, ignoring calls and texts to find out where je was, not turning up when he said he would etc), so we should have realised we would have problems but at the time it was fitted I was heavily pregnant and ww were very distracted!
We are now left with a central heating system which make very loud banging noises which wake the whole house up at night, and no way of reaching this plumber!
Any advice would be much appreciated!

A gas engineer has just told me i must box in my combi boiler before he works on in due to gas regulations (the boiler is located over the end of the bath). Is this correct and if so, should be boxing be fixed or removable?

I have a gas meter (new 2010) under the stairs in the kitchen. At the moment it is just connected to one gas pipe which runs to the boiler but I want to run a pipe to the back of the cooker in the kitchen so that in the future I can have a gas oven/hob. (can't afford to do both jobs at the same time) The floor is concrete and I want to run it in the floor, approx 2 meters as I am going to retile the floor anyway. Can the pipe be buried in the floor? What sort of cost am I looking at? Any help/suggestions? ( I know I cannot do this work myself)
Thanks for your help, I will post the job when I have the new floor tiles.
