In the current economy almost everyone is looking for ways to save money. If you have been considering a new central heating boiler then you may be able to save some money by installing this item for yourself instead of hiring a professional installation technician.
The critical part of installing the central heating boiler is for you to determine where it will be placed in the home. One of the best places to put one of these items is in the interior section of an exterior wall. This will allow you to vent the unit correctly.
The next thing for you to consider about the central heating boiler installation is how the pipes will need to be positioned throughout the structure so that the heated water reaches every faucet. You will need to run water pipe from the boiler Cv storing to the faucets and you will need to run water pipe from the cold water supply to the central heating boiler.
You will need black threaded pipe to run from the mains gas supply to the boiler unit. Gas pipe is made from rigid metal and not from plastic like water pipe is. You will want to make certain that your main flow pipes and all of the other pipes are set to be parallel to each other. Drawing a diagram of where you need the pipes to be will help you to keep this straight in your mind during installation.
When you are mapping out routes for your pipes try to place them inside walls, behind baseboards, under floorboards, and places like this so they will be inconspicuous. This takes a little more time, but the end result is more attractive and pleasing.
Once you have all of the pipes ran you will need to connect them to the boiler unit and you need to run tests to make sure there are no leaks. To check for gas leaks you can turn the gas on and then take liquid dish washing soap and place a few drops on any of the connections in the pipe. If you see bubbles then you have a leak and need to shut the gas off and repair the leak before proceeding.
Water pipes will obviously have a drip if they are leaking. During the installation the use of Teflon tape and glue to make the connections strong and seal them is highly recommended. You must check for leaks before you seal the walls and baseboards that are hiding the pipes from your line of sight.
After you have ruled out the possibility of leaks in the water or gas lines it will be time for you to turn the device on and see if it functions properly. If the device does not function properly refer to the instruction and installation manual that came with it to see if everything was hooked up according to manufacturer specifications.
