We have recently moved into a house where the boiler is situated within a
cupboard with a Venetian door. The boiler is a Baxi Solo 3 80 PF and
according to the installation manual (conveniently left by the previous
owners) the "appliance may be fitted inside a cupboard. Cooling
ventilation and insulation of the cupboard is not required". Am I
right in interpreting this to mean that the boiler doesn't need any
source of ventilation in the cupboard as long as the minimum
clearances aren't encroached upon?
The thing is, the boiler is quite loud and tends to wake the wife in the
morning so I would like to somehow reduce the noise emanating from
the cupboard. The obvious answer would be to simply put a piece
of hardboard/MDF across the back of the slats but I had assumed
the boiler would need some sort of air flow around it?
Is any one familiar with this boiler?
