What are the important considerations for installing boilers in the kitchen?
There are a number of important considerations to bear in mind when installing a boiler in the kitchen. These considerations include:
- Space- you will need to choose a space in your kitchen that is suitable for the boiler to be installed within. This will need to be on an outer wall for the flue to carry the waste gases away from the boiler. The boiler must also be a minimum of 300mm away from the sink for maximum safety.
- Combination boilers- a combination boiler can be the most effective option for installing a boiler in the kitchen. This is because both conventional and system boilers require storage tanks which are usually located in the attic. As a result, installing the boiler in the kitchen would mean a lot of extensive pipework. A combination boiler would not have this issue.
What are the advantages of installing your boiler in the kitchen?
There are a number of advantages and benefits to installing a boiler in the kitchen. These include:
- Easy to access- a boiler in the kitchen is easy to access and check on frequently. This means that keeping up with the boiler maintenance is much easier too, and as a result, you you will notice immediately if there are any issues or problems.
- Can be hidden- installing a boiler in the kitchen can be effective as the boiler itself can be hidden discretely inside a cabinet or cupboard that compliments the rest of your interior design choices.
