Central Heating

Boiler upgrade

Hi,
I have a 3 bed mid terrace , 1 bathroom property and have a 24kw combi boiler which needs upgrading.

Is 24kw a big enough capacity or should be considering a bigger boiler such as 28 or 30kw.

Also helpful to know when considering quotes for this work.

Many thanks
