Boiler location

Once you’ve decided on the type of system, you require you’ll need to assess where to locate the new boiler. Most people tend to situate their boilers in kitchens, utility rooms or even the loft. Just ensure that if the boiler is housed in a room where the temperature might drop, it is well insulated.
