    At some point in the near future will replace our trusty old Oil fired Danesmoor, hopefully a new boiler will fit better in the kitchen units and lose the vertical flue. A plumber has suggested he fit a Firebird with a 10 year warranty, thoughts ?

    Also wondered if that would be a good time to hook in a wood burner back boiler and possibly solar water heater. What other plumbing 'gadgets' would I need to make all that work please? A mate of mine has an old big box in his cupboard that joins it all together.

    Keep your danesmoor. Bomb proof.
    If you decide to change it then look at Hounsfield boilers. Looking for space then look at the external models.
    For solar, stove and oil then thermal store for me.

    As Simon says an external boiler is a great option if you’re looking to clear up space. I have installed quite a few Firebirds when I used to install and always liked them, others opinion will vary. If you want solar thermal, stove and oil then again I agree with Si, thermal store is what I’d suggest. This is going to be quite a costly installation though so get a few references and quotes from notable installers, if done properly by a good engineer this will future proof your house for many years to come.
