Can't think of one. The installation manual will usually give the
dimensions for the clear space all round the boiler casing needed for
Bit more of a PITA kneeling down to work on it.
Maybe also consider the space needed for an external pressure vessel as
the internal one will eventually fail and be expensive or unobtainable
and just leaving it in situ and adding generic one downstream is the
normal cost effective solution.
I guess it'll depend on the boiler/heater I choose as to if there's
enough room for pipework. Then that raises another question: The kitchen
floor is concrete. Is there a reason not to be able to dig extra space
