Smart meters are self-reading meters that come with an in-home display. They make life easier because you don’t need to submit meter readings. Your smart in-home display shows you how much energy you’re using in pounds and pence, and gives you the power to set budgets and save money.
On the 6th of April 2018 the ‘Boiler Plus’ schemes introduced by The Department for business and industry Strategy [BEIS]. They address the energy efficiency of heating systems and have raised the bar for manufacturers and installers.
The most notable change applies to the minimum performance standard for domestic gas boilers in England. The minimum efficiency level of all boilers manufactured and installed will be set ar 92% ErP. The main motivation behind the change is to phase out inefficient boilers and reduce carbon emissions in line with targets set by the EU. It forms just part of a wider plan known as the Government’s Clean Growth Strategy which aims to combat climate change and provide UK homes with greater comfort and lower energy bills.
Gas boiler performance: space heating efficiency of the new boiler no less than ErP 92%. Time and temperature control required for all gas and oil boiler installations
Combi boiler installations must also include one of the following: Weather compensation, Load compensation, Flue Gas Heat Recovery, Smart controls.
A Flue Gas Heat Recovery (FGHR) is a device designed to improve energy efficiency of the boiler by recycling the heat from the flue gases which would usually be lost into the atmosphere. Instead this heat is used it to preheat domestic hot water.
Weather compensation devices enable the boiler to read the outside temperature via a sensor so that the boiler can adjust the temperature of your heating accordingly.
Load compensation measures the response of the heating system and adjusts the flow temperature based on what is needed to reduce fuel consumption.
Homeowners who knowingly allow non-compliant work to be carried out could also face prosecution and fines of up to £5,000.
Control you heating from your phone is a popular option.
Smart Controls are intuitive devices that will understand and learn when to heat your home by using sensors to monitor movement.
