The government has announced that to raise standards of household heating and improve energy efficiency as part of their Clean Growth Strategy, all new Combi boiler installations must comply with the new Boiler Plus scheme.
As from the 6th April 2018, the Boiler Plus scheme will be part of the Building Regulations and to comply, one of these four options must be included with the installation: –
• Flue gas heat recovery system
• Weather compensation
• Load compensation
• Smart heating controls.
In addition, the Regulations state that gas boilers must be set at 92% ErP which will help to reduce carbon emissions. For further advice on the Boiler Plus scheme and prices for either replacement or new heating installations, please contact us.
