What is a Fan?
Fans are an important part of the functionality of a boiler as they expel unwanted gases and particles away from the property. The fan is the part that pushes fresh air into the combustion chamber, allowing the gas to be burnt correctly. It also clears the toxic gas after the combustion process is complete. The boiler has safety protocols in place to make sure no gas can be passed through to the main burner if the fan is not functional. Some suppliers will use the same fan throughout a range of boilers however which fan you need maybe dependant on serial number. Manufacturers include Baxi, Ideal, Worcester and Vaillant.
It is important to take your time to find the right Fan for your Gas Boiler. We have a large range of fan and fan spares in stock at Direct Heating Spares and if you are unsure please give us a call.
