I’ve just bought an apartment with a gas boiler. The apartment is 8 years old but never been lived in as the developer went into NAMA and its only being sold now.
On expection I noticed a copper pipe coming out vertically down from the boiler about 18 inches and then just stopping. It looks like the condensate pipe and I thought this was meant to go outside through the wall Incase of vapor etc.
The boiler is an Ideal Mini boiler. Can someone let me know if I need to redirect this pipe outside?
At the moment the pipe finishes in a cupboard where there is electrical plugs etc
Hi my carbon monoxide alarm is giving me a head ache and making me feel dizzy ðŸ€”
Firstly I would suggest you buy a new Carbon Monoxide alarm that has a CE mark on it.
Symptoms of CO Poisoning Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning can be similar to those caused by other illnesses such as a cold or flu. They include
Unexplained headaches, chest pains or muscular weakness
Sickness, diarrhoea or stomach pains
Sudden dizziness when standing up
If anyone in your house has any of the symptoms outlined above get fresh air immediately, then go to your doctor and ask him/her to check for Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Stop using the appliance immediately and do not use it again until it has been checked by a registered installer or a qualified service agent. The amount of CO which the blood absorbs depends chiefly on two things: how much CO is in the air and the time of the exposure. Adverse effects of CO on humans are reduced by periods of breathing fresh air. The degree of recovery depends on the number and length of those periods. The general state of health and degree of physical activity of a person exposed to CO are other factors involved in the effects of Carbon Monoxide on the body.
