Boiler Plus Explained
Boiler Plus standards were brought into effect in 2018 and will impact any future installation of heating systems within UK homes. These regulations have been implemented as a means to improve the way in which people use energy. The aim is to improve overall energy efficiency and provide a better understanding of how people heat their homes.
There are 3 key requirements:
- All gas boilers installed into existing systems in England to have an ErP efficiency of at least 92%
- All gas and oil boilers require time and temperature controls to be installed at the same time, if not already present and working
- Combination boiler replacements to include the provision of additional energy efficiency measures to be installed at the same time
