a room sealed appliance doesn't need any vents, if boiler is in a cupboard it may need a small vent but not necessarily to the outside

BE WARNED!!!!! Just because it's a combi doesn't mean it's room sealed!
May be an older model open-flue combi. You MUST check this before you assume it doesn't need ventilation!
