Price Guide and Information Sheet on the Cost of Fitting/Replacing a Central Heating Header/Expansion Tank
I’m trying to work out why you want a header tank. Existing header/expansion tanks never go wrong and if you are fitting new central heating it’ll be included in the price. Let’s assume your existing header/expansion tank has been sited a bit too low and lifting it up will help the system work a lot better, which after all is a reasonably common problem.
