These requirements are different for different type of boilers. By Tangra’s pellet boilers are very important – keep the minimum distance between the boiler and the walls, a floor made of non-combustible materials and ventilation, which ensures fresh air supply.
In the technical specification you can find the minimum required under pressure in the chimney, as well as the minimum diameter of the chimney connection.
What is the power supply, (220/380V), electrical capacity of the unit and is it possible to connect it to the existing electrical installation?
