Nice to see you're in the hands of Corgi registered experts..
Last time I checked it's only an offence to do work for payment. Which means that I can fit a new boiler myself, but not actually put an electrical spur in to provide power to it as that would require part p...
In fact IIRC I can't even change a light fitting in my own bathroom for the same reason, but I can fit a gas fire in my living room.
I'm sure you can change one, as in a replacement for the old one. Part P is fairly open the way I read it.
Certainly sounds like the fan to me and at eight years old is about right for lifespan.
They are fairly easy to replace yourself just remember to re-fit the tubes from the air pressure switch. When you order it just make sure you give them the serial number and Gas Council number from the data-badge as its not unknown to change component suppliers part way through a production run.
On the CORGI registration front?, its a grey area. Several interpretations exist for this type of work:-
For hire and reward you need registration.
If its for yourself then its only "competance" thats required, not registration.
If its not a gas carrying component then registration is not required but competancy still is.
In any event, they are easy to fit.
New neighbour's husband turns out to be a heating engineer - he's putting in a new fan for us tomorrow
Competency being properly trained and have completed ACS certification. Although I do love visiting jobs after DIY boiler repairs go wrong! Best get yourself a carbon monoxide alarm whilst you are at the merchants!
