Boiler Plus legislation made easy with Worcester

Published: 20-02-2018

From April, the new Boiler Plus legislation, which is part of the Heat In Buildings policy, will mean that new gas-fi red combi boiler replacement installations in England must be installed with either a smart, load or weather compensation control or a flue gas heat recovery unit.  Rest assured, Worcester has every option covered.

What does Boiler Plus mean?

Essentially Boiler Plus is a new set of regulations, which affects only heating engineers in England and will change how new gas-fired combi boilers are installed into existing heating systems.

The main crux of the legislation is:

  • Combi boiler replacements must have a minimum efficiency of 92% ErP


However, homeowners and installers must then select from four different energy-saving measures to work alongside this:

  • Load compensation control
  • Weather compensation control
  • Smart thermostat with automation and optimisation
  • Flue gas heat recovery unit with a time and temperature control
