    no it is not correct. balanced flue boilers can be installed as long as they're condensing boilers. all boilers have to be condensing now

    a balanced flue boiler cannot be fitted as a balance flue boiler is only 75% effeiant, you have not been able to buy a balanced flue boiler for about 15 years now,

    a balanced flue is a square flue usually about 6 inches by 9 inches retangle, although sizes vary with the output of the boiler, they completely rely on the burner to 'suck' the air in and exhaust the burnt fumes, they have no fan,
    all boiler now and the last 12/15 years have fanned assisted flues, they are not called balanced flues, but fanned flued

    Jeez, Elvis - what are you on?. A fan flued blr IS NOT balanced, although both are room sealed. As said, there are no condensing balanced flue boilers, theref ore you can't fit them.

    Extract from Viper manual-

    'Room sealed appliances provide the solution to a number of problems associated with open flue systems. Appliances of this type are purchased as a complete unit which incorporates the flue system. They remove the need for a potentially costly and elaborate flue system. They also provide an extra level of customer safety being room sealed.
    There are two main types of ROOM SEALED appliance:-
    Balanced Flue (The most common type)
    Appliances specifically designed to be used in a shared flue system
