#InstallerASK – What does the future hold for gas-fired boilers?

Last week our director of marketing and technical support, Martyn Bridges, took part in the latest Installer Magazine Twitter Q&A. The live session was held for an hour and called out for installers to post their questions on the future of gas-fired boilers.

The topic received a raft of questions from installers before, during and after the Q&A, these are below as a handy FAQ for those interested in the topic.

Following the success of this event we’re likely to host another live session on Twitter to discuss topics of interest within the industry. We welcome your suggestions on future topics at sue.pennington@worcester-bosch.co.uk or tweet us at @HeatingYourHome.
