Basic requirements to the room for the installation of gas boilers

Gas boilers are widely used to work in the autonomous heating systems.Easy to use, low cost of "blue fuel" - all contribute to their popularity among homeowners, especially in the private sector.At the same time work with these units requires special care.Accordingly, the space in which they are located, also have to meet certain standards and meet the necessary requirements.

Few dwellings owners thought about the question, how to properly called that "room", in which the gas boiler (of his choosing, read here) will be installed.And from the name and it depends on the order of arrangement and the conditions that need to be run at the same time.

often hear - "domestic boiler."Is it correct?Before you decide on the requirements that apply to this room, understand the terminology.After complete combustion is much easier to arrange than a boiler.For example, fewer problems with the installation of electrical equipment.


Without going into details, the subtleties of the various definitions and additio

ns to the basic regulatory documents, we point out that Combustion - or a separate room built to the building, or specially dedicated to the installation of the boiler room in the house.This is the first.In addition, it is not possible to put more than 2 gas heaters units (boilers).At the same time there is a limit on their aggregate power - no more than 200 kW.Consequently, with regard to the private house (with rare exceptions), it is equipped with burning, instead of a boiler.

should be pointed out that it is a floor-mounted boilers.Wall-mounted models can be installed in almost any room, except those in which the constant excessive or high humidity (laundry, bathroom or toilet rooms, swimming pools).Also, they can not be installed in bedrooms and nurseries.As a rule, for the convenience of a wall-mounted boiler control it have in the kitchen (30 kW).But for floor-standing appliances need a complete Furnace.

Once again, the conversation talking about gas boilers floor.


to "combustion" arrangement requirements

Room Dimensions

All boilers have structural differences, including, and the type of combustion chamber.If it is closed (laid coaxial chimney), the room dimensions are irrelevant.But for models with open chambers have certain standards (at a minimum):

  • 7,5 m3 - for devices up to 30 kW;
  • 13,5 m3 - up to 60 kW;
  • 15 m3 - for boilers with a capacity of more than 60 kW.For every additional "kilowatts" of the device to be added 0.2 m3 of space.

volume, as is known, is the product of quantities: length x width x height.So, the last option - strictly fixed and can not be less than 2 m Therefore, choose the size of the room you need with the "eye" is at its height..


Location combustion

on any floor, including the basement and the basement.This applies to all models, where the movement of fluid through the pipes (water, antifreeze) is carried out forced (pump).But if TLO series boiler (natural circulation of coolant), only in the basement or cellar.

door to the furnace must comply with fire safety standards (type III).Below - a gap between its bottom and the floor - at least 0.025 m2.If the door is adjacent to the floor densely, settling the small window at the bottom for closing the bars.


Each "cube" room - not less than 0.03 m2osteklennoy surface.Moreover, at least one window (not less than 0.25 m 2) - on the street (this does not apply to devices with closed chambers)


Firstly, one must have air vents.Secondly, there should be compulsory hood.In 1 hour it should provide 3-fold air exchange.

Fitting boiler

  • From the front panel of the boiler to the wall (doors) -. At least 1 m
  • should be guaranteed easy access to the device from all sides.This is necessary for the convenience of work on its maintenance in full.
  • boilers are put on a pedestal, the height of which, as well as fire protection requirements for its arrangement stipulated in the instructions for installation of the device.
  • wall (or walls), which is the boiler must be of non-combustible materials (or protected from thermal effects).


should be noted that all of the above for private homes with centralized gas supply.If liquefied gas is used (containers), then there are some features.For example, in this case, the boiler must not be installed in the basement.Therefore, such nuances should be checked further.

In addition, there are features and depending on the material from which the house is built, made the floor decks.Therefore, before connecting the gas supply to avoid problems, it is desirable to invite specialists for the purpose of inspection of the combustion and identify gaps.

You have to understand that the requirements are constantly being improved, changed, refined.In addition, each region has its own regulatory framework.Therefore, the excess will be no professional help, well, the main and most important points we have indicated.
