Anyone here running an Esse Ironheart? If so how are you finding it?

 

I’m away to pick one up next week all going well. Used but hardly buy the looks of things.

My mate had one installed when he added an extension to his kitchen, he has the back boiler version that he runs the underfloor heating from, he really rates it as the best thing he has bought, it looks great too.


Awesome!

The one I’m picking up has the back boiler too. I’m planning on just running the hot water off of it.

I am pretty sure you can connect it to the central heating system, you just need to keep one radiator on all the time to draw off the heat, most people put one in the attic to do this. I am not a plumber though so look into this first if it is an option.

Some may say that a heat sink rad in the bathroom is a smarter move.

Last time i looked the back boilers on these werent meaty enough to do central heating and hot water cylinder. Which seemed daft cos they look pretty nice and also seem very efficient to use

If you are thinking of connecting it to an existing central heating look at 

WWW.H2PANEL.CO.UK

Allows either of the heat sources to work independently or in conjunction.

Had ours working with no problems, Rayburn and a condensing boiler.

Ive read (I think on the Esse Website) that they can only run the Hot water and a single radiator. I did wonder why anyone would want to run a single radiator off of it but I now see its needed as a heat sink. 

 

Cheers. :)

Bathroom is right off of the Kitchen so thats an option, I'll be running underfloor heating in there once I get around to renovating it in the new year. The additional heat in there would be great.
