BHL supply an exceptional range of boiler flues that are perfect for use in heating installations. A boiler is a duct, pipe, or opening in a chimney for conveying exhaust gases from a fireplace, furnace, water heater, boiler, or generator to the outdoors. Flues are adjustable and are designed to release noxious gases into the atmosphere. Usually the flue is a metal tube that comes out of the top of a boiler and goes into the wall carrying away unwanted waste gases. A flue in poor condition could put you and your family in danger from carbon monoxide poisoning, BHL are here to ensure that doesn’t happen! We can advise and direct which flue would be most suitable to your boiler. Dependent on the size of the boiler, the flue must be positioned a certain distance from the nearest window, door or air brick, typically BHL have experienced that this is around 30-60cm to the side or above the opening. Some properties are known to have a room sealed fan assisted boiler, where the flue can then pass through wall or ceiling ducts.
Fitting the flue:
Firstly, measure the distance from the external wall to the appliance, and set the flue to the required length. Align the air duct seams, then mark and drill a 3mm hole in the air duct. BHL top tip: be careful not to pierce the inner flue duct, finally secure the joint. Secure the telescopic terminal assembly using the clamping band and be certain to fit it in the correct orientation. Push the telescopic flue assembly into the wall and through the grips, pull the flue assembly forward to the required depth, and then secure the flue. If required, fir the internal sealing collar onto the locating ring, push the telescopic flue assembly through the grips and wall until the sealing collar has exited the hole. BHL recommend you have someone qualified in the profession, install your boiler – if you were to install your own boiler its warranty would then be void. Finally pull the flue assembly forward to the required depth then secure the flue. Alternatively, give BHL’s benevolent team a call to discuss fitting a flue, or a boiler.

Plume kits are designed to reposition the plumage exhaust for a number of reasons; the plume kit is an optional extra to the flue supplied for the boiler. Flue systems and associated components must be installed only by a competent person in accordance with the installation instructions and correct gas safety regulations 1998. There are other standards to also be followed such as: flues and ventilation for gas appliances of rated heating no exceeding 70Kw and failure to install correctly could lead to prosecution.
