Here's a money saving tip for anyone with a combination or condensing boiler. When you next run the hot water to wash your dishes ( my dishwasher died ) or shave etc, after the sink is half full slowly shut the tap off until your boiler shuts down. The incoming cold water will then push the hot water in the boiler and pipes out of your tap. Should be enough to fill the sink. This might work if your boiler is already lit on central heating duty, in other words slowly open the tap until warm water issues forth. This is trickier, basically you don't want your hot water demand to cause the boiler to switch to hot water duty. A little bit of scrimping there.
