How To Install Baxi Boilers
A Baxi boiler is a great brand to have and to use inside of your home when trying to heat water and provide central heating. If you are trying to save yourself a bit of money than you should consider trying to install it your self. This is a long process and you should always have one or two people to help you. Also have a wrench and screwdriver on hand.
Start by clearing the space around where you want to be placing it. Make sure that the unit is as close to the chimney as you can get it. If there is no flue than you will need to have one installed. This will help to avoid the need for you to use a long smoke pipe and other parts that you will need to fit onto it. The less parts that you have to worry about the easier and cheaper it will be for regular maintenance and repair.
You need to place it on top of a concrete foundation. When you are assembling this the parts will have to fit on easily and perfectly. Make sure that you are very careful with how this is done.
Install the necessary hot water and steam pipes leading to the boiler. Than have it run from the connections that were provided into the boiler kit. Put the hot water pipes through the wall by cutting through the floors and the walls and create the right system.
Connect the smoke pipes leading from the boiler to the chimney. This can be difficult and tricky. Make sure to follow the necessary directions on your user manual so that you do not make any mistakes. Problems in the installation will cause smoke damage.
Insulate the pipes so that your unit will work more efficiently. After that you need to link the oil burner to the boiler. Follow the user manual instructions carefully.
