Gas Work Question

Replacing a conventional boiler to a combi

I'm in the process of replacing a conventional gas boiler and was considering converting to a Combi-boiler. When I had a site visit by British Gas they said it couldn't be done because the pipework was not compatible. I don't know much about copper pipes but what I do know is that you can get different size reducing fittings. Should this be an issue converting from one boiler to another? I just thought BG were after a quick £3.5k refit?

British gas are crooks and rip people off. So I would not trust a single word they have said! Their prices are sky high and the work done is often shoddy and to a poor standard.

If in doubt get another opinion from a reputable Gas Safe engineer. In my opinion the advice that BG have given you may be correct if your existing pipework carcase is Microbore through out, doubtful but possible.
