Boiler


Hi,
Can a central heating boiler be fitted with a 13amp plug and be plugged into a wall socket?
Many Thanks

unswitched socket it will work quite safely. It would however be better to use a switched fused spur and wire the boiler into that.

More of the same, my gas central heating boiler, pump and wall thermostat are all powered from a 13amp plug in a wall socket. If you are talking about a wall hung boiler near a kitchen sink then there might be an electrical safety issue regarding a 13amp plug and socket due to the close proximity of the sink, taps and water.
