Switching from Kerosene to Gas

    Thinking we need to switch from kerosene to gas. Current kero boiler is about 30 years old

    As a complete novice what are the questions I need to be asking of any installers that I call.

    I've read that we should allow approx 1.5Kw per radiator, we have 8 so = 12Kw?

    If we ever extend should I over spec the boiler to allow for this and is there a disadvantage to this approach?

    With the power shower I assume I need to keep the hot water tank and go for a system boiler?

    Any recommendations as to makes?

    Are we like the UK now in that it should be a condensing boiler?
