Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

One of my properties has an old fashioned gas fire and back boiler downstairs in the lounge. I’ll be doing a bit of renovation work there when my tenant moves out next year, so I was after some advice as to what others have done in the same situation.
The boiler works and is checked every year for the gas certificate, but the fire is disconnected as it wasn’t working. Heating is all done through gas and wall radiators.
My thoughts were to remove it all and get a combo boiler upstairs or in the kitchen to replace it. Then it’s a toss up of whether I board up and keep the mantle place area blank, or replace with another electric or gas fire in the lounge.
Happy for any comments and suggestions, or problems that this might cause that I’m missing.
Thanks in advance.
