    Hi all,
    My old (1985) Vaillant Combi needs to go.

    Three bedroom Victorian mid terrace. The only external wall downstairs is the side wall of the bathroom extension - the original kitchen was widened.
    Tony Agile may remember - you did a repair last winter !

    The boiler was installed in the bathroom - above the bath. I have been told by one that is not acceptable anymore.

    Looking through posts here suggests that different manufacturers have different location requirements , different installers sometimes try to suit themselves for ease or extra work.

    I have attached a couple of pictures and wondering if anyone can offer any suggestions.

    Can I "box in " at the current location ? Would installing a "normal" combi instead of a Condensing Combi let me keep the original siting ?

    There is a cupboard under the stairs and one on the landing upstairs but neither have access to the outside for a flue. Or what about a Boiler Cupboard out the back ?

    Thanks for any advice.

    No such thing any more as a 'normal' combi. They're all condensers these days. No matter, as it wouldn't make any difference anyway.

    Not ideal, but if you are limited, the above suggestion may be one way of fitting a new boiler in.
