Question re boxing combi boiler

A gas engineer has just told me i must box in my combi boiler before he works on in due to gas regulations (the boiler is located over the end of the bath). Is this correct and if so, should be boxing be fixed or removable?

He is correct.This is so that you cannot touch the boiler (any associated electrics) whilst in the bath.He should have told you a bit more than what he has.

hi

yes your boiler should be in a cupboard,

as it is over your bath there is a possible risk of a electric shock,

boiler will need minimum clearances as per boiler manufacturers installation manual, cupboard can be fixed or removable

hope that helps,

best wishes for 2012
