Are you thinking of replacing your back boiler?


Have bcak boilers been banned? This is a question that has been asked many times by home owners and tenants using back boilers for their heating systems. There have been problems with back boilers in the past. It was proven that the traditional solid fuel back boilers could cause carbon monoxide poisoning.


This is because the back boilers made use of the air in the room to keep the fire alive. Most modern boilers are placed outside or have vents that allow them to utilize air from outside the house.


Fear towards back boilers has also developed due to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) warnings regarding explosions resulting from reuse of fireplaces with redundant back boilers. This risk is however easily avoided by replacing the back boiler with a new gas back boiler.

The government has set regulations requiring boilers to meet certain standards in energy efficiency. These regulations do not entirely cancel out the use of back boilers, but they will not allow the fitting of a new back boiler in a property unless it had one previously installed. The replacement of an old back boiler with a new back boiler is permitted only in situations whereby the replacement of the old back boiler with a modern boiler system would prove difficult.


You may ask how you determine whether you should replace your back boiler with a more modern boiler or not. The building regulations introduced a point system that requires you to have at least 100 points for you to qualify to replace your back boiler with a similar or more modern back boiler system. The awarding of points is dependant in the dimensions of your house and the type of living space (i.e. flat, apartment, semi-detached house e.t.c.), whether the boiler will require moving cast iron drainage pipes and the length of the flue for the new boiler amongst other factors. Each factor carries a certain weight in points. Points are awarded to your home according to the factors that have to be taken into consideration and if the total is greater than 100 points, you will be allowed to replace your back boiler with a similar back boiler system.


If your back boiler is still working efficiently and this has been confirmed by a technician, the new building regulations do not require you to have your back boiler replaced. The law allows you to keep your back boiler and buy spare parts to maintain it. There are some manufacturers who are still producing the spare parts for back boilers.


If you are considering the replacement of your back boiler you may want to consider having a Baxi Back Boiler installed. Baxi back boilers are regarded as reliable and durable. These back boilers are still very popular. Little work will be required to replace your old back boiler with this modern energy efficient system. This system will reduce your heating bills significantly. The spare parts for the back boilers are readily available therefore maintenance will not be a problem.
