Choosing a new boiler for your home is a great idea. Modern boilers are far more energy efficient than previous models, and this means that they use a lot less fuel. As a result, you could save money on your energy bills, and reduce your carbon footprint too. And with the advances in technology that have been made, combination boilers are now smaller, and lighter than ever before. Which means that they can be installed in a range of places around the home. Although, there are a number of things to consider. Here at Mark Vernon, we are Worcester Bosch boiler experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to Worcester Bosch combination boiler installation.
Worcester Bosch Combination Boiler Installation
Choosing a combination boiler means that your boiler wont have to be stuck in the attic or loft, and instead you can make sure it is in a practical and sensible location. These combination boilers also make much less noise than their predecessors, which means that they will not be distracting when placed in rooms that are frequently used. In fact, you could have your boiler positioned in:
- The kitchen- some combination boilers are able to be boxed into a cupboard that fits with the rest of your kitchen space
- The bedroom- many combination boilers are now installed in the bedroom. Without the noise, the boiler will not keep you up at night.
Wherever you decide to install your combination boiler, there are some considerations to take into account. These include:
- The load- A boiler can be heavy, especially with a tank of water. Even the smallest combination boiler will need to be installed on a strong brick wall.
- Flue and pipework- The flue pipe is responsible for carrying waste gases away from the boiler and out of your home. There are some regulations that stipulate minimum distances, regarding how far your flue needs to be beyond the windows, buildings and air bricks.
