UK Boiler Fitting Regulations
It is estimated that 16% of the world’s annual CO2 emissions come from non-condensing boilers’ In a bid to decrease this the UK has implemented a series of new condensing boiler regulations. These regulations, along with a set of guidelines, have recently been issued by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister in the hope that all new dwellings will be fitted with condensing boilers. Why you should have a condensing boiler? Condensing boilers have two internal heat exchangers which means that the heat lost to the surroundings, especially through the flue, is decreased. This makes them highly efficient. They also use less fuel and power which makes them the greener alternative, plus their CO2 emissions are much lower than their non-condensing counterparts. What the new condensing boiler regulations say, In simple terms the new regulations state that:
All gas-fired boilers fitted after the 1st April 2005 have to be condensing boilers. This applies to all brand new installations and those that are a boiler replacement.
All oil-fired boilers fitted after the 1st April 2007 have to be condensing boilers and again this applies to new installations and replacement boilers.
All condensing boilers fitted after the 1st April 2005 have to have a SEDBUK efficiency rating of either A or B.
There are a number of other new regulations in addition to these three, however, these are the main ones that need to be followed.
