What Is Boiler Plus?

Boiler Plus is the name given to brand new legislation outlining the regulations that must be met for heating manufacturing and installation. It comes into effect on 6th April 2018, throughout the UK. This means that the manufacture and installation of heating within the UK must adhere to Boiler Plus. There are some important changes being made in Boiler Plus, many of which address the energy efficiency and safety of boilers. These include:


  • Space heating efficiency of new gas boilers must be no less than ErP 92%.
  • Time and temperature control is required for all gas and oil boiler installations.
  • Combi boiler installations must include either weather compensation, load compensation, flue gas heat recovery or Smart control.
