4.4 AIR SUPPLY
It is NOT necessary to have a purpose provided air vent in the
room or internal space in which the boiler is installed. Neither is
it necessary to ventilate a cupboard or compartment in which the
boiler is installed, due to the low surface temperature of the boiler
casing during operation.
4.5 ELECTRICAL SUPPLY
This appliance MUST be earthed.
Wiring external to the boiler MUST be in accordance with the
correct IEE Regulations and any local regulations.
The plug should be used with an unswitched/shuttered socket
outlet complying with BS1363.
4.6 GAS SUPPLY
A propane gas supply at 37mbar is required.

The discharge pipework must be suitable for use with 3bar water
at 110ºC without damage to property and persons.
The run and exit point of the pipework should not leave a hazard
or be prone to freezing up.
4.12 DHW SYSTEMS
Check that the mains supply pressure is within the units stated in
the technical data section in this manual
In areas of low mains water pressures the domestic hot water
