Condensing Boiler Installation Condensing Boiler Installation

To learn more about condensing boiler installation, you will want to make sure to know all the facts at hand before beginning the process. Since this can be a dangerous process, you will want to make sure you have enough information to begin. You should follow the directions exactly so you do not run into any problems during the process.

Prepare Materials

You will want to make sure you have all the materials out in front of you before you begin working. This is to ensure that you do not have to let a tube go while you are connecting the boiler. You will also want to make sure that you place the boiler down on level ground. These boilers can heat a home rather quickly, and you want to make sure there is no need for a fire hazard around where you will be setting it up. You will want to set up near a ventilated area, so no gases are sent through the home. You will want to keep the necessary perimeter around the boiler as well.

Installing Pipes and Routes

You can then place the radiators around the home where you would like them under the windows. Make sure there is 100 millimeters above the ground, and 150 millimeters below the window. You will want to make sure there is adequate space around the heaters as well. You will then want to select the best piping and routes to use. You should position the piping away from doorways and other obstructions.

Fit your pipes beneath floor boards for ventilation, and distribution of heat throughout the house. Put both the main flow, and return pipes next to one another when placing the pipes in. Twenty two millimeter pipes should be enough to create the main, and 15 millimeter pipes for the "T" of the radiators. Secure the pipes, and run them from the radiators to the boiler.

Finalizing the Process

You will want to make sure you finalize the process by securely tightening the pipes to the radiators, and the boiler. Use a pen to mark the flow on the radiator for future use. You will then want to place the air ventilation plug above the valve, and the other plug on top of the radiator valves. Attach the valves, and lock shield valves to the radiator tails. Try not to attach them too tightly. Connect the cold water to the boiler. Loop your houses cold water supply pipe to the copper boiler pipe. You can then add the gas supply. Once the gas supply is connected, you will want to make sure that it works properly by turning the gas on. Make sure your face is not close to the boiler while you do this or that there is a direct line of pure oxygen. Doing this may cause the boiler to explode. You will then want to try and run the boiler to start heating the house. If you find something is not right, you can always go back to redo things. 

Installing any kind of boiler is something that generally requires a professional. Do not attempt to do this on your own without first consulting a professional.
