We had a gas boiler installed. The registered installer did not highlight any issues with fitting the boiler before fitting it. I was away when the job was done and now there is a "snorkel" never mentioned pre work up on my front wall on the street.
He has drilled the hole for the flue ca 1.75m high. Apparently the neighbours complained about the vapour going in their door (we were never notified of neighbours complaint by the installer at the timw of the incident) and to satisfy the neighours (?) such extension was installed. Is that normal as to me this looks very odd solution. Could the exhaust pipe come out from boiler in another angle and could we then have the pipe going up inside the wall and exiting higher to the outside with the "traditional flue opening"? (It cannot go straight up as it is solid stone wall just above it).
