Boiler Plus and you

Boiler Plus, which comes into force on 6th April 2018 in England, is part of the government’s Clean Growth Strategy to deliver high levels of efficiency and comfort, based on a resident’s property and lifestyle, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Boiler Plus is an amendment to Part L of the Building Regulations and is solely concerned with heating and hot water, which means it directly affects you. You may already be compliant in your domestic installations – in fact you may be well ahead of these regulations – but here are the three specific minimum standards you are required to meet:

1. The efficiency of the new boiler must be at least 92% ErP

2. Time and temperature controls must be fitted for all gas and oil boiler installations

3. Combi boiler installations, new or replacement, must include at least one of the following technologies when fitted:

· weather compensation

· load compensation

· flue gas heat recovery

· smart control

We’re creating an Intergas Matrix to help you ensure compliance. We’ll be sending you the link shortly but, in the meantime, if you need more help or guidance, please contact our Technical team on 01527 888000 (option 1). They are all fully conversant with Boiler Plus and how to successfully meet the three requirements
