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.
Johnson & Starley is recognised as a leading provider of innovative solutions for the domestic heating, ventilation and renewables market, with an extensive range of residential heating and ventilation solutions.
Johnson & Starley's latest QuanTec boilers address all the key areas of condensing boiler design. Build quality, for example, is reflected in the use of full condense stainless steel heat exchanger technology, as it is by far the most durable material.
Their flagship model the QuanTec HR28C, praised by a leading consumer magazine, is the only boiler currently available on the market with integral heat recovery whilst still retaining a standard sized cabinet. The result is a super-efficient combi with heat recovery integrated in the primary heat exchanger and all within the normal boiler cabinet size; a first by any manufacturer.
