Boiler Plus, launched by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, encourages energy efficiency by mandating requirements for heating systems, setting out new expectations regarding what both manufacturers and installers have to deliver.

This policy requires a new minimum performance standard for domestic gas boilers of 92% ErP plus all new combination boiler installations must include one of the following as part of the central heating system:

• Flue gas heat recovery system
• Weather Compensation
• Load Compensation
• Smart controls featuring automation and optimisation functions

The aim of these new regulations is to improve the overall efficiency of central heating systems, delivering cost savings through reduced energy usage in the long-term. They are also instrumental in the UK meeting its ErP Directive obligations to reduce carbon emissions.
