If you're looking for a versatile boiler that can be fitted anywhere in the property, then the Keston C30 is the boiler for you. its a very smart looking boiler and has tried and tested technology and parts, as this is almost the exact identical boiler to the long-running Ideal favourite, the logic combi. Ideal actually own Keston.
It has a 7-Year warranty when fitted with the Keston magnetic system filter, which is basically a rebadged Fernox tf1 omega filter. and is very reasonable on price.
The Keston C30 Combi Boiler is rated at 94% ErP, meaning its class A, but the package seasonal space heating efficiency can be raised to 98% ErP Class A+ when fitted with the nest learning thermostat wired via Opentherm for load and weather compensation.
The Keston C30 has a twin-pipe flue system using solvent weld modified unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (mupvc) and can have flue lengths up to 27 meters in 50mm diameter pipe.
A bonus is the fact the flue pipe can be installed outside, this makes the Keston boiler a very versatile option for those awkward jobs.
