Please View New Building Regulations With Effect From 1st April 2005
Gas-fired boilers installed after 1 April 2005, and oil-fired boilers installed after 1 April 2007, must be condensing boilers, whether they are replacements or new installations.
Condensing boilers are more efficient than ordinary boilers as they:
- Produce less carbon dioxide while still meeting heating needs - Reduce the amount of heat that is lost through the flue, compared with ordinary boilers - Convert 86% or more of the fuel they use into useful heat (older types of ordinary boilers may convert as little as 60% of fuel to useful heat)>!!
