Retain aga as well as central heating?
I'm buying a 1930s semi: two ave. size reception rooms, plus kitchen, toilet and separate bathroom (no separate hallway to speak of). Four bedrooms (two double, two single) plus bathroom and landing.
It has no central heating at all at the moment. They use an old Aga to heat the water and plug-in electric heaters in the rooms.
I want to install full central heating system and boiler to run the hot water and heating. Is it possible to do this (and for approx how much?) while retaining the Aga?
Thanks very much for any help.
yes it is possible to do what you ask, there is only one foolproof way search Dunsleyheat neutralizer. Cathedral has a good system but does not use the agas ability to heat water.

I had this exact same situation at my own house, I personally chose to fitted a good quality combi boiler system to enjoy the full benefits of modern technology. The Aga is seperate but still conected to the gas for cooking and heating our kitchen/diner in winter and they do of course look so fab and homely.
It is very hard to price a system without measuring up and you giving me more details about what you would like but a budget of £5000 would be about right.
If you would like more free advice then please feel free contact us anytime.
