Gas hob ventilation. Existing instalation


Postby slaterlp » Sun Aug 24, 2008 1:18 pm

Hi,

Anybody help with this question please.

I have an existing gas hob installed in my kitchen. its a Bosch NET 675.

Can someone tell me if opening a window is sufficient to satisfy the regulations. The house is a 1950s build and the kitchen is double glazed with an opening lovre window (if that is the correct term for a horizontal opening window.)

The kitchen has a door that leads to the back garden.

There is an extract fan above the Hob, that has to be switched on manually.

I am confused by the regulations.

1) Do I need an eair brick?
2) Does the Extract fan have to be automatic?

There is also a Worcester Combination central heating boiler installed on the wall, and this has a room sealed flu.


Thanks in advance. :)

Hi htg.

Thanks very much for the reply. My kitchen is just 10 sqmeters. .

Can you tell me where I could find the text that gives these measurements? Is there a web page with these rules I could look at. I was trying to find one, but I just confused :)

I have never had any problem with fumes or the like, so I assume it is safe not to have an air brick. I dont have any objection to one, its just that I dont have a wall that one could go in. The only place would be behind the base units. In fact there is an old one there but it is behind the washing machine.

I am going to have a boiler service and I have been told that if the gorgi engineer thinks that i should have an air brik, he has to turn off my gas until one is fitted.

So I just want to be able to say that the regulations says its ok for a kitchen of my size.

Not if he thinks you should have one - if the regulations state you should. As the boiler is room sealed and the kitchen is 10m2 you don't need ventilation.
