    I am currently purchasing a property that has a cooper boiler. However in a couple of rooms there is small brown boxes that appear to look like speakers. However the estate agent seems to feel they are part of the heating system any advice would be great I have attached a picture for reference thanks

    Yeh there are radiators in the room also running off cooper boiler. There is one of those brown boxes in two bedrooms then in the living room a larger brown box with dials but I haven't got a picture of this until I get the keys. Just trying to find out some information so I know what to expect. Thanks

    As soon as I can get more pictures I'll up load them. They look like speakers from the front like s mesh material covering them and on the size is like a removal cover a bit like the back of a remote. The house is very old fashioned inside so just hoping not a major job to remove.

    The removal cover is just to the side of the box.

    You should probably budget for a modern heating system

    The rooms up stairs have been applied with polystyrene tiles so no pipe work is visable from just looking I guess I won't know more until I remove tiles once keys are released. I was just hoping somebody knew what they was from past experiences thanks

    Quick question, you say running off a copper boiler, I think you are referring to the hot water cylinder, Have you any idea what boiler is fitted,? on a wall somewhere or Back Boiler with gas fire in front. but its looking like you need the system updating hope you made allowance for this when you bought the house or you could be in for a nasty shock.

    We have got savings for modernisation. The house has a copper boiler in an airing cupboard in bathroom. A gas fire in living room. Radiators in all rooms and these brown boxes in two bedrooms.

    Sounds like an old baxi back boiler on the fire

    No you don't have a Copper Boiler, you have a Hot water storage cylinder, By the sounds of it your BOILER that produces the hot water is behind the gas fire, most common are Baxi or Glow-Worm units.
