Vertical Flue Boiler – FAQs

Check out our response to frequently asked questions about vertical boiler flues.

What Is a Vertical Flue?

A vertical flue is an essential component for many boiler installations, particularly when horizontal flue installation is not feasible. It is designed to safely transport exhaust gases from the boiler to the outside of the building through the roof.

We offer a range of vertical flues suitable for different boiler models:

  • Worcester Vertical Flue: Designed specifically for Worcester boilers, ensuring compatibility and optimal performance with these models.
  • Ideal Vertical Flue Extension: An extension piece for Ideal boilers, this is ideal for situations where additional length is required for the vertical flue to reach the roof.

Each type of vertical flue is designed to meet the specific requirements of different boiler systems and installation scenarios

How Do I Know If I Need a Vertical Flue?

To determine if you need a vertical flue for your boiler, consider the location of your boiler in your home. If it’s not positioned on an external wall or if direct horizontal flue exit to the outside is not possible due to building structure or regulations, a vertical flue may be necessary.

Vertical flues are used to safely vent exhaust gases upwards through the roof. If you are unsure, it’s important to consult with a qualified heating engineer who can assess your specific situation and advise on the best flue option.

Vertical Boiler Flue Regulations

Vertical boiler flue regulations are designed to ensure safe installation and operation. Key aspects include:

  • Flues must be installed at a certain distance from windows, doors, and building openings to prevent exhaust gases from re-entering the property.
  • The flue terminal must be positioned where it cannot cause harm or nuisance and should be accessible for inspection and maintenance.
  • Regulations might specify the maximum length of the flue and the number of bends it can have.

It’s crucial to follow these regulations for safety and compliance. When we conduct boiler installation services, our gas engineers will ensure that they follow these regulations.
