    "Hi, you can check the serial of the boiler and search on the internet his power and how many radiators can use. If you bought yourself the boiler you should have on paperwork all the details of the boiler. A normal boiler can go up to 8 radiators a good one. I have in my house boiler with 7 radiators and is extension design. Hope it helps."

    "Generally if you have had an Architect and have drawings it should state it on the plans regarding the gas appliances.
    ( if it’s a small single with one or two radd it’s ok
    But anything else new boiler or separate systems)"

    "Calculate the heat losses from the building and the heat requirements for the water heating (baths showers etc)
    Find out the output of your current boiler, If the boiler produces more power than the house uses it will be able to cope."
