Considerations for installing Worcester Bosch boilers in the loft

Here at Mark Vernon Heating and Plumbing, we are leading  Worcester Bosch experts. And this is our to guide to what you should consider when positioning your new boiler in the loft.

What are the important considerations for installing Worcester Bosch boilers in the loft?

There are a number of important considerations to take into account when installing your new boiler in the loft. These include:

  • Space- there needs to be enough space in your loft to install a boiler on a wall that is strong enough to load bear. This usually needs to be an external wall to support the weight of the water.
  • Access- access to the boiler is important to help change the boiler temperature, set timers, check the boiler pressure, and to undertake boiler maintenance. This needs to be safe to access for both your household, and any gas engineers who may be fixing or working on your boiler.
  • Cleanliness- keeping your boiler clean of debris and dust is an important consideration as this helps to reduce the risks associated with boiler breakdown. In a loft environment, this can be difficult to achieve and you may need to install the boiler inside a cupboard or cabinet that meets regulations and recommendations to try and protect the boiler.

What are the advantages of installing a Worcester Bosch boiler in the loft?

There are a number of benefits to choosing the loft as the installation space for your boiler. These benefits include:

  • Saving space- by using the loft space for your boiler you can save space in other areas of the home.
  • Reduced freezing risk- loft installation can reduce the risk of freezing pipes when compared to basement or garage boiler installations.

Replacing your Worcester Bosch boiler

Here at Mark Vernon Heating and Plumbing, we are leading  Worcester Bosch experts. And this is our to guide to everything you should consider when replacing your Worcester Bosch boiler.

What are the important considerations when replacing your Worcester Bosch boiler?

If you need to replace your Worcester Bosch boiler, there are a number of important things to consider. These include:

  • The type of boiler- there are a number of different types of boiler available to choose from. These include combination boilers, traditional boilers and system boilers. For most replacements, homeowners are usually happy to replace like for like. But if your circumstances have changes, or you’d like a different type of boiler, this is something to consider. Changing to a new type of boiler can be more difficult and costly to install in some circumstances, so you may need to take this into account.
  • The size of the boiler- choosing the right size boiler for your home can ensure that there is enough hot water to service your whole house, and power the central heating too, without wasting energy. Boilers that are too small will struggle to heat your property, and as a result experience more wear and tear and earlier burnout. Boilers that are too large will cost more money to heat, and use more fuel, for no reason.
  • The installation location of the boiler- the place within your home to install the new boiler is also an important consideration. From the garage to the basement or attic, or even the kitchen or bedroom, Worcester Bosch boilers can be installed safely in a range of places, but you may need to take some specific things into account, in some rooms. For example, frost protection in the cold garage.
