HWCH’s customer had a rather ugly old boiler mounted in a cupboard in the kitchen.
This unit had to go, as a refurbishment was imminent. We recommended fitting a Vaillant boiler in the utility room.
The Vaillant 428 is a small open vented boiler which is designed especially for the UK market, where we often have a small radiator tank in the loft.
The boiler flue from a modern high efficiency unit discharges plume, a condensation laden steam effect rather like an old train. Building Regulations and good neighbour relations mean that we have to be mindful in which direction this discharges.
We used the Vaillant ‘Variable Flue termination kit’ accessory to run the steam output all the way up the side of the house and discharge it safely and aesthetically, vertically next to the roof.
The flue matches the rainwater goods in size and colour.
