The heating boiler installed in the bathroom works especially when we additionally heat it with utility water, which then has the shortest path. This increases the efficiency of the stove.

Boilers with a closed combustion chamber will work better in the bathroom.

The kitchen is a room where both hanging and standing boilers can be installed – in accordance with the space available, they can also contain a large storage tank. Installation can be limited to incorporating the device into hanging kitchen cabinets. This solution allows partial hiding of the installation.

Boiler in the attic
Installing the boiler in the attic of a one-story house or on the top floor in a multi-story house is a solution far from ideal, but often the best possible, and sometimes simply the only one.

The natural gas boiler can be located at any building level. It can be placed in the attic as well as in the basement or on the ground floor.
