April 2018 Boiler Plus Legislation

As you will be aware, from April 2018, the government requires all gas boilers installed into existing systems in England to have an ErP efficiency of at least 92%, have time and temperature controls installed at the same time (if not already fitted) and require combi boiler replacements to include the provision of an additional energy efficiency measure to be installed at the same time.

When replacing a gas combi boiler, at least one option from the following must be specified when installed:

  • Weather compensation
  • Load compensation
  • Smart thermostat with automation and optimisation
  • Flue gas heat recovery (FGHR)

In readiness for the new legislation we are delighted to announce that our Vitodens 050-W, 100- W and 111-W Combi boilers are now fully compliant with the Domestic Building Services Compliance Guide (DBSCG) 2018 (for Part L 2013) as standard. The Weather compensation sensor will be included in the box at no extra cost and with no part number changes.

These Boiler Plus compliant models are easily recognisable by the DBSCG label on the boiler box, shown above.

The Vitodens 200 range of boilers, include the weather compensation sensor as standard in the control that comes with the boiler.
