Hi my landlord is getting central heating in the house. The Plummer came round and wanted to put the boiler in the bedroom, to which I said no. We agreed it would go in the bathroom. Very home from work and the bracket on the boiler is on the bedroom wall. Can I refuse this.

Hi Pete, the answer to your question is NO. We have the combi in our sons room in a cupboard. The old boiler was housed there before this. I think that the boiler needs to be in a cupboard by law, I’ll check if you want me to. Providing the boiler has a sealed outlet you are safe. I will warn you that it will be noisy, that is why it needs to be in a little cupboard. I cannot understand why boilers are not installed in kitchens anymore. Anyway, I do know for sure that central heating boilers can be installed in bedrooms, as I questioned this when ours was recently condemmed. Only had the new one for   a week. I hope you were not left without hot water for long like us? Read my first blog. From Bolly
