Mark, welcome to the FORUM my friend.I personally would hook it to the rads--but your choice is not to.Sooo, if that is the suggestion you got from a qualified, knowledgable engineer, what's the problem in following his suggestion.I beleive that if you do this, there may be no coming back should at some point you were to decide to take advantage of the existing boiler set up--if you don't see that happening, then by all means have at it. Again, welcome my friend.

I have purchased one of the above stoves in order to be a room heat source only. Unfortunately, I didnt realise it had a back boiler. I have learnt that I must not run this dry or there could be serious problems. We dont wish to connect it to our rads or provide hot water.
I have been given some hope in that an Aga/Rayburn engineer said that I can remove the boiler and replace the back panel with a piece of cast iron and get it welded/bolted on.
Has anyone got any advice on this or whether some of you have actually done this themselves? If so,could you give me some advice on how you did it?
Your help woudl be appreciated.
