Then I'd build a cupboard for it to go in.
I think most combis nowadays are silent when not in use, but mine at
least (an Ideal Logic) makes quite a row when it starts up. Partner's
Viessmann is better, and far more 'refined'. Point being that I wouldn't
go on dB figures alone.

one answer might be to to turn it off at night. Otherwise I think you will need to build a small soundproof room for it and that won't be easy (it need ventilating for example, and for sound proofing reasons those vents should not open into the bedroom).
At night everything sounds much louder. Boilers don't just 'hum' they make clicks and whirring noises.

Pointless, as everyone seems to be different in their levels of

I was chatting to someone outside his house, which was right next to a
railway bridge. He didn't even seem to register that the train was going

could get used to sleeping in the same room as a boiler. *If they
absolutely had to.*

I worked on a seismic survey vessel once. Every 10 seconds there was a ver
