gas and venting


Postby deborah9684 » Tue Nov 30, 2010 7:17 pm

I hope someone can advise me, i have gas central heating and the boilers are NOT in the house, i also have a gas hob which of course is in the kitchen.
I have two air vents in the kitchen, one near the floor and one at window height, they let a lot of cold air into the kitchen. Do i need them? The actual holes measure 4 inches x 3 inches and the kitchen is very large.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Deborah,

If you only have a standard domestic gas hob and your kitchen area is more than 5 cubic meters, then no purpose made ventilation is required.

kind regards

Hi Debhora

Sorry, I am not permitted to advise on installations outside the UK as the rules of this forum dictate, for safety reasons.
