Hey guys

Where is the best place to have my manifold? I want 3 zones.

The kitchen is 2.4 x 3.1 m
The bathroom is 3.1 x 3.1 m (Directly above the kitchen)
The conservatory is 2.1 x 3.1m (Directly next to the kitchen boiler wall)

The kitchen is the natural choice as all 3 zones are nearby, and I can plumb/wire it into the boiler easily.

However, my only concern is that the manifold wouldn't be at the highest point. Is there an issue with air trapping in the pipes upstairs if the manifold is downstairs?

My research is giving me conflicting information so thought I'd ask some of you very knowledgeable people.

Thanks in advance
