Building Regulations

The Future of Heat

Significant changes to Building Regulations are likely to take place in 2018 to raise domestic boiler installation efficiency. How can you stay ahead of the curve? Chris Yates, Managing Director at
Johnson & Starley discusses....

In December 2016, the government ran  a consultation entitled Heat in Buildings – the Future of Heat. The purpose of the consultation was to ask views on options the government proposed for raising domestic boiler installation efficiency. The aim was to bring in measures that  reduced energy bills for tenants, giving more choice of ways to heat homes but also support the government’s targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through to 2050.   Gas boilers play a huge part in our heating industry accounting for around 1.5 million being installed every year.  The UK is by far the largest boiler market in Europe and the proposals do show that the government does recognise how big an impact these appliances make.
