    Hello All,

    I take it that We all know that the `Boiler Plus` additional Controls regulations only apply to Combi Boilers regarding the 4 specified options for additional Controls ?

    Heat Only Boilers must be at least 92% efficient - that is the only specification that applies to that type of Boiler under the new `Boiler Plus` regulations.

    With regard to `Controls` - Heat only Boilers obviously still require `Time & Temperature Control` and of course `Boiler Interlock` regarding the Controls - but apart from those they are NOT subject to any additional `Boiler Plus` regulations / specifications for additional Controls.

    This has NOT been explained in most of the `Information` that has been recently published about Boiler Plus and because of that I am sure that there could be many Heating Engineers / Installers that don`t know the correct details.

    I tried to attach a Graphic authored by the HHIC which shows this VERY Important point but I got a Forum Error Message.

    An article about Boiler Plus from the `energy & utilities alliance` which quotes information from the Heating & Hot Water Information Council [HHIC] and explains the above and includes the Graphic that I mentioned is here:

    Now’s the time – start telling customers about new boiler legislation.

    I hope that this will help some future readers of this thread.



    EDIT: Here is a HHIC Consumers Guide to `Boiler Plus`:

    I will be offering the manufacturers own wireless control as an option to meet requirements. Will only offer weather comp to young customers with newish houses

    customers think it's crazy to pay more money for very small saving that will possibly take the life of the boiler to recoup. Or even worse cost more overall.

    Hello again,

    Further to what I wrote about the new `Boiler Plus` Controls only applying to Combi Boilers:

    Only 6 Days after the new `Boiler Plus` regulations coming into force [6th April] the Government department responsible - the `Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy` has written about their interest in a future `Boiler Plus Plus` - basically putting similar `Higher Efficiency Controls` specifications onto Heat only Boilers as well as the new / existing regulations for Combi`s.

    As they wrote that they would be looking at the `Boiler Plus` regulations outcome in a Year`s time and again in 5 Years perhaps they should have waited until a Year had elapsed before bringing up `Boiler Plus Plus` ?

    Here is a Link to the article in the Heating Ventilating & Plumbing online Magazine:

    I suppose we’re lucky in Wales atm as ‘Boiler plus’ doesn’t apply. It can be a good sale though , as an optional extra :)
