  2. 2. Colour key Key Terminology Impact Score – Each article is awarded a score, up to 10, based on a number of qualitative criteria as follows: Feature/News item (+2), minor mention (+1), less than 25% of page in size (+1), between 25-50% (+2), more than half-page to a full-page and larger (+3), contains an image (+1), neutral tonality (+1), positive tonality (+2), spokesperson quoted (+1), third-party endorsement (+1). OTS - Refers to the number of “Opportunities to See/View” the coverage or media spots. For print it is simply the aggregated circulation figures. For online, we work with the estimated number of page impressions the website would have on a particular day. We do not aggregate monthly unique user totals. £PRV - For print coverage is established by using an attributable percentage of a particular article to the rate card specification for a single full-page colour ad. We do not take into account variations related to various options for buying ad space, simply the stand-alone full-page colour rate. Page 01

  9. 9. Social Media Insights Page 08 Blogs & Forums Several question were posted on Yahoo’s Answers forum, including: • I've got a Baxi Combi 105 HE ..approx. 5years old. I've had it serviced before, and I called an engineer out, but was useless... need help please!! - Link • I know I'm not the only one in this predicament but my duel fuel bill has just gone through the roof! … My combi boiler is a Baxi 80e or 105e - Link • Baxi 80e combi boiler heating not working hot water ok pump ok.? – Link Several posts and threads were made on the site UK Plumbers Forums, including: • Baxi 105e – Singing Assembly valve again! – Link • Replacement of Expansion Vessel on Baxi 105e Instant (Stockport) - Link • Baxi Bermuda/honywell heating problem – Link • why is my baxi duo tec 2 combi Ga not letting me set the sensor curve – Link A couple of posts were made on the Review Centre website: • "Baxi Combi 133 HE Plus - absolute nightmare" We had a Baxi Combi 133 HE Plus fitted just over 4 years ago by a Corgi Registered Plumber (ex British Gas employee). We have had nothing but trouble with it. It was 4 weeks out of Guarantee when we were getting loud banging noises when it fired up. Had to have burner replaced costing nearly £300 incl labour. Sent old burner off to Baxi but got no joy from them. After a few months the banging started again. Several visits from plumber did not fix the problem. Joined British Gas scheme and have now had to have the burner replaced again.. Still getting banging noise, which is very loud and the neighbours are complaining. Have had B Gas back again last week, he checked it again and said see how it goes. It is still happening and is quite scary at night when all is quiet. Surely this must be a design fault. We have the heating on timer and just leave it to get on with it, so how can it be something we are doing? I am thinking of getting on to Trading Standards as I think the Boiler is not fit for purpose – Link • Review of Baxi Potterton "BOILER IS WORSE THAN THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE“ - The boiler is very bad and customer service is even worse. I have waited 2 hours to speak to technical service and there was no response – Link A couple of threads were posted on Money Saving Expert: • Question on the Condensing function of my LPG boiler I have a Baxi condenser boiler fitted into a property that we have been in for a few months. Have a big LPG tank in the garden and trying to get the place set up for heating without costing too much. Proving difficult, this damn stuff is expensive!! – Link • Advice please! Potterton Suprima HE 50 boiler - manufacturing fault I have a Potterton Suprima HE 50 condensing boiler which broke down in Nov. The fan was replaced, but in Dec it broke down again. Our engineer phoned Baxi who told him there was a design fault with the flue in earlier models. The flue had a metal component instead of plastic. Metal corrodes and shouldn't be used with condensing boilers. This had happened with our boiler and water got into the fan killing it. Despite being out of warranty, Baxi reluctantly agreed over the phone to either replace the parts themselves free of charge or reimburse us the cost of getting our engineer to do it. I asked for this in writing and since then have got NOWHERE. - Link
