    I mainly fit Worcester and ideal, with combis I predominately use both of there RF controls for cost effective installation. Previous to boiler plus anyway.

    Comfort 2 for Worcester
    Touch RF wireless for Ideal

    Unless the customer wants a smart control.

    I will always try and sell the most appropriate controls for the customer. Ie not a smart web enabled stat to a pensioner with no internet or mobile phone...!

    As an interested observer can someone clarify the requirement for
    "Flue gas heat recovery system" under the new boiler plus rules. Doesn't every modern combi already have this?

    Stop the diy gas and selling to public / non qualifieds then I might think about it

    I totally agree that Gas Safe guys should be the only ones able to purchase and install gas appliances.
    However that doesn’t excuse anyone from not meeting building regs.
    The same as unregistered people working on gas, not meeting building regs is in contradiction of the rules.

    Do they get punished for not following the regs no

    By ‘they’ im Assuming you’re talking about unregistered gas workers. Yes if they are caught they get the book thrown at them.
    But I think there is still more that can be done. I have thought about joining a union that would take our issues to the HSE and Gas Safe. This may lead to having things changed in our favour.
    Unfortunately until such time we are all bound by the rules and need to make sure we opporate within them.
    Just as an illegal gas worker can undercut a properly approved guy on price. An installer not fitting boiler plus controls can undercut an installer who adheres to the regs. The customer harldly ever knows the difference, all they see is the price.
    In my view both types of fitter are a pain to the industry and until things change ‘officially’ we should all make sure we are carrying out our work in the most professional way possible in accordance with ‘current’ regs.

    I’m msking a very fair point here mate, About doing our jobs properly and professionally. I don’t really see that I should be made fun of for that.
    Either this forum is a place where professionals can exchange ideas or it is allowed to become a boys club for halfwitts.
