    Hi,

    I’m looking to relocate a shed.

    Does anyone know what the UK restrictions are as to how close it can be placed to the external flue?

    It’s one of the types of flues which emits straight out, its a new build.

    I presume there is a radial distance?

    thanks.

    Make/model of boiler? Manufacturers will provide individual guidance on such matters.

    600mm minimum, but be aware that the plume contains a lot of moisture which will not do a wooden shed much good at all

    also contains carbon dioxide which, if it could get into the shed, would not be good for anyone in the shed.

    Yes, If in high levels of concentration. (CO2).

    Unless you’re getting confused with Carbon Monoxide? (CO)

    CO2 can be as much as 10−25 volume percent or more of the flue gas ( 10% = 100,000 ppm )

    Can't say I've ever seen one as high as 25%
