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.
