What is Boiler Plus?
Boiler Plus is an upcoming legislation which will ensure that homes in the UK have efficient heating systems. From April 6th 2018 all new boiler installations require a minimum ErP efficiency of 92% and have time and temperature controls fitted.
Combi boilers also require one of four additional criteria to be met to comply. Choosing the best option that works for each home is important as different homes have unique requirements. The criteria options are:
- Load compensation - Using a control to modulate the boilers output by intelligently taking into account the current room temperature.
- Weather compensation - Using a control to modulate the boiler output by intelligently taking into account the current outside temperature.
- Smart control - Providing automation for heating and hot water using a smart control resulting in optimised boiler efficiency.
- FGHR (Flue Gas Heat Recovery) - This process redirects gases that escape the flue back into the boiler to preheat the water.
