any corgi gas engineers out there? boiler in bedroom…
Its been a while since I have been on the site…its got all modern !
Here’s my delema I have a VOKERA LINEA 24 Sealed room unit, its in a bedroom (was installed before we moved in) I am now wanting to use this room as a bedroom, I have spoken to VOKERA who assure me its safe etc it gets serviced every 12 months.
If you are corgi registered please help me feel easy about having it in a bedroom, and what are the costs likely to be if I was to move it.
If you are not a gas engineer then please try not to pass to much coment about this subject ! Sorry to sound harshPosted 9 years ago
Well, i’m a computer programmer…
if you don’t feel safe it doesn’t matter how much reassurance you get you’ll never feel entirely comfortable about sleeping in the room.
if you’ve spoken to the manufacturer and still don’t feel reassured you’ve really answered your own question…Posted 9 years agotomlevellMember
I’m an engineer, but not Corgi registered. Then again I doubt many if any Corgi registered gas technicians are engineers. Which is it you’re after?
I’m an engineer and I don’t even get my hands dirty.
Officially they are safe. This assumes they were installed safely in the first place of course. Get it serviced by a reputable engineer ;0 and fit a CO detector and remember to get it serviced every year.Posted 9 years ago
Moving it would probably be a waste of money.
The only other issue is noise during use which may or may not be a problem for you.40mpgSubscriber
I had a boiler in my bedroom for 10 years. If its in a cupboard (as I was told by the BG engineer) it needs ventilation and space around it for air circulation. Mine had some vents into the loft above, and Handy Andy and Carol Smillie built me some lovely fabric covered doors to aid airflow (its in the right hand cupboard).
Never had any problems in 10 years, and was quite used to the rumble as it started up in the morning. Never needed the radiator on in the bedroom either!Posted 9 years ago
