Where would I find a merchant who will sell to me a High Efficiency Gas Boiler or a ASHP, there many companies in the UK, the largest being the Wolseley Group and a number of smaller businesses, are there similar merchants for trade and domestic customers in Portugal.

Many thanks

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but one of the biggest boiler brands here is Vulcano - as for where you can buy them, it depends where you are based. i know there are shops selling them in my area (silver coast) and usually they can provide a technician to install https://www.vulcano.pt/

I do not know if those are highly efficient, but gas boilers can be found at Worten. Worten seems to provide installation service though I have not tried it.

Gas boilers might be not a good choice at the moment or in the future. Best post your heating (house or water) requirements in the forum.

Many options, lots of expertise.

@iggy Thanks for your reply, but gas boilers are still the most cost effective and greenest option, when whole life costs and environmental issues are taken into account, even the EU has declared natural gas to be a green energy. Maybe one day hydrogen will replace NG, probably not in my lifetime, new gas boilers are available as dual fuel i.e. NG and Hydrogen. 

I am considered an expert in the heating and energy field 😉😊 .
