I note you have edited my full response
Are you a troll
No. I edited my own response. Touch of paranoia?
A dedicated supply to a piece of equipment you do not want disturbed by tripping from faults by other electrical items or that requires more sensitive RCD’s or different protection to that provided in a standard CU.
thats ok if the system is rcbo but if its on a split board half of its going off when the rcd trips any way
There are no regulations that state this ..
But there are regulations about spurs off spurs, which plumbers tend to ignore.
Vee- you can disagree with me you like, but please offer up a BS 7671 reg number to back up your position
You are missing the point as this is not about regulations, but what is correct for a particular scenario. You are generalising for a boiler.
I am offering a direct answer to the op.
His question was do I need a dedicated fused spur for a new gas boiler.
The answer is no.
Equally electricans often fail to understand controls.
He asked about Best Practice, not just the minimum requirement under the Regs. Surely that can differ?
Murdock - You surely understand what I am saying her and if you where so up on your Regs you would not disagree with this. Have we touched a nerve?
Not touched a nerve . Just making sure an unsuspecting client isn't badly advised by a plumber, regarding electrical regulations.
It's that simple.
What makes you think you are the only electrician on here?
Didn't say I was.
Maybe the op should post the question on the electricians forum, and see what they say.
I am an electrician and install boilers.. lol
No requirement as Murdoch says but if it was my house, it was easy, and i had a RCBO board, then definitly i would give it a dedicated cct.
Boilers often have zone valves, boilers also often leak, when i am fault finding a tripping RCD, boilers like outside lights and outside sockets are well up there as potential culprits. Having a dedicated cct just makes it easier to find and reduce the nuisance factor
