Introducing the condensing boiler installation
assessment procedure for dwellings
•
•
•
•
•
Gas-fired and oil-fired domestic central heating must use condensing boilers
in most circumstances
Where installation of a condensing boiler may be difficult, an assessment
should be completed to see if a non-condensing boiler would be allowed
‘The Guide to the Condensing Boiler Installation Assessment Procedure for
Dwellings’ explains the assessment procedure
If it is suspected that a building may not be suitable for a condensing boiler,
a standard form must be completed to assess whether a non-condensing
boiler can be fitted for a specified fuel.
Appendix G of Part L of the Building Regulations is the form
for assessing when non-condensing boilers are permitted.

The condensing boiler installation assessment
procedure for dwellings – assessment criteria
The following criteria must be considered:
• Dwelling type
• Existing boiler fuel
• New boiler fuel
• Existing boiler type
• Existing boiler position
• In the lowest cost option, is the new boiler positioned
in a different room from the existing boiler?
• New boiler positioned in a different room to the
existing boiler?
• Extended flue (longer than 2m) necessary?
• Condensate pump or soakaway necessary?
This will lead to an assessment score.

relating to space heating primary circuits type and design for gas-fired and oil-fired wet
heating systems
Circumstances when non-condensing boilers are
permitted in domestic heating systems
In residential buildings, a non-condensing boiler is allowed only if:
•
•
an existing boiler is being replaced within 3 years of installation
under the manufacturer’s or installer’s guarantee
OR
The assessment form shows a score above 1,000 giving evidence
that installation of a condensing boiler has been assessed as
impractical or uneconomic.
Note that a score above 1,000 does not prohibit installation of a condensing
boiler.

Possible difficulties with condensing boilers
There are a number of possible difficulties with installing condensing
instead of non-condensing boilers.
Compared to non-condensing boilers, condensing boilers:
•
•
•
•
discharge gasses from the flue terminal which are cooler, less buoyant
and often form a visible plume
discharge gases which may wet surfaces too close to the terminal, or
be a nuisance to neighbouring property or people passing nearby
cannot use a flue designed for a non-condensing boiler or share a flue
with a non-condensing boiler
form liquid condensate within the boiler which must be discharged to a
suitable drain or soakaway

Key points from ‘Guide to condensing boiler
installation assessment procedure for dwellings’
From 1st April 2005, revised Approved Document L1 of the Building
Regulations sets down revised guidance for the efficiency of hot
water central heating gas and oil boilers installed in new and
existing dwellings.
Appendix G of the revised Approved Document L1 is the Condensing
Boiler Installation Assessment Procedure, which is to be used in
cases where it is expected to be impractical or too costly to install a
condensing boiler.

Key web pages
You may have found a range of websites that contain relevant information.
Note the key websites in your course folder for future reference.
Tutor to add specific websites if felt helpful
Websites, regulations and standards are frequently updated so you may want to revisit
websites and conduct further research in future to ensure you are always using the
latest information.

Worksheet
Students should work individually to complete a heat loss / demand / boiler
sizing worksheet with a set of example parameters.
Example worksheets are available from various energy providers,
manufacturers, trade associations and/or government websites.
One example suggested for use in this session is available from The Energy
Saving Trust – CE54, available to down load via this link:
