    Hi to all. Have quoted from two heating engineers for my new heating system. One with low loss header and three pump(hot water cylinder,heating zone 1,heating zone 2),one with out. The house is 5 bedroom with loft conversion and back extension,will have 20 radiators and 300l hot water cylinder. Can someone give me a advice what is the best choice,because it’s a big difference with the price. Thanks to all.

    The guy with the three pumps/zones and the low loss header sounds like he knows what he is doing.

    As above.
    Anyone who would be using a low loss header, is on the ball.
