    Boiler in a bathroom

    Heating Engineers

    Is it possible to have a boiler installed in a bathroom? Might this depend on a range of different factors? Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    "Yes, you can but it depends on the area.

    If it's in a compartment then all good. But it should not be reachable from a bath or shower as a general rule.

    There are other factors to consider."

    Yes you can as long as it’s a room sealed boiler that is fine. Normal room sealed combination condensing boilers are fine. Obviously, we’ll have to double check certain clearances etc.

    Hope that helps!"

    "Hello, yes is possible but the boiler needs to be a room sealed boiler and a minimum 600mm away from the bath preferably concealed in a cupboard to protected from bath steam."

    "You can have a boiler fitted in a bathroom but there are regulations regarding electrical equipment and various zones in the bathroom.
    To comply you would either need a very large bathroom or the appliance would need to be boxed in. A bathroom is not the ideal location for a boiler."

    "Depending on the manufacturers, most boilers can be installed in zone 2 as they’re ipx 4 rated which means they’re splash resistant, the fuse spur would need to be 3m away from any bath or shower area but we put these outside the bathroom and any controls."

    "Can be done, bathrooms are “zoned” & can be installed into some areas.
    However, you would always be better to install the boiler in a cupboard if located in a bathroom."

    "Yes, you can install your boiler in the bathroom, but keep in mind about zones. The boiler should be in a boiler unit/cupboard as well as a fused spur."

    "You can put a combi boiler in a bathroom. there are certain regulations that must be followed. The boiler flue as with all installations must exit the room in a safe manner and should be positioned in accordance with manufacturers' instructions by a qualified installer."
