Understanding Boiler Installation

Gas boiler installation can be quite the task especially if you are unfamiliar with boiler installation. A gas boiler requires an attentive installation with no mistakes so that everything will work easily and smoothly. The same is true of wood boiler installation and any other type as well.

Before installing any type of boiler you will need to make sure you are certified for this type of installation project. Most states will require that a permit sought when installing or, removing or replacing a boiler. It is important that you check with your local codes for building before you install any kind of boiler.

The first thing you will want to do is prepare the boiler location and make sure that you have water lines, gas lines and electrical circuits near the location in which you wish to install the boiler. Next you will need to prepare the boiler itself for the installation. You will do this by removing it from its shipping carton by unscrewing it from the carton and carefully sliding it off of the wood base. You will want to be responsible and discard all packaging materials correctly. This means recycling the excess gas boiler installation wood.

Now it is time to dress up the boiler. This means that you need to screw on and attach all the accessories that come with your boiler. After you do this you need to install the water piping and install the flu pipe as well as the venting, depending on the type of boiler you have, for instance a combi boiler installation or other type of gas boiler installations may affect the type of venting that will be needed. It is extremely important to vent the boiler properly for safety reasons. The final step in all of this is to connect the gas to the boiler, before you fill and start up the boiler. Double check your work and make sure everything is securely connected so that you do not run into issues when starting the boiler.

It is important to know that you will need to hire a professional licensed person to start the boiler for you. This is because they need to make sure that the cO2 output is adjusted to a safe level and they will double-check the venting as well. This is good and important because it helps to have someone double check your work before a disaster occurs. Never start the boiler yourself. You could wind up with some major issues. Once the professional has turned on your boiler you can now use it to heat your home, office or the location in which you installed the boiler.
