Boiler Plus 

SALUS Introduction

SALUS Controls welcomes the UK government’s newly introduced energy initiative commonly referred to as Boiler Plus. We believe that this is an important legislative step that will ensure homeowners receive the most effective and efficient domestic heating system to save maximum energy and cost.

Our Boiler Plus range provides thermostats with onboard load compensation and a range of connected thermostats with optimisation and automation.

What is it?

  • New legislation that came into effect in April 2018
  • Only applicable in England. Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland are excluded
  • Designed to improve energy efficiency in domestic heating systems
  • Applies to all new and replacement gas central heating systems installed from April 2018
  • Can influence the correct choice of SALUS heating control to install

Overview:

The legislation was set out in October 2017 by the UK Government Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) for implementation in April 2018. The Boiler Plus Policy Document describes their objectives:

The new standards we have outlined in the Boiler Plus Policy Document improve the way many people use energy in their homes by giving them greater choice, greater control and tangible savings on their energy bills. The new minimum performance standard for domestic gas boilers in English homes will be set at 92% ErP.

The standard will also make timers and room thermostats an explicit requirement for all gas and oil systems, putting beyond doubt the need to give consumers the power to achieve the greatest comfort in the home.

When a gas combination boiler is installed, an additional energy efficiency measure will be required.

This requirement is flexible to allow a suitable choice to be made that reflects the diverse nature of the housing stock and the needs of the household. The energy saving technologies that can be used to comply are:

  • Flue gas heat recovery systems
  • Weather compensation
  • Load compensation
  • Smart controls featuring automation and optimisation functions

The four energy saving options:

Flue gas heat recovery systems:
Defined as a device which pre-heats the domestic hot water supply by recovering heat from the boiler’s flue emissions.

Weather Compensation:
Defined as a control function which maintains internal temperatures by varying the flow temperature from the heat generator relative to the measured outside air temperature. Weather compensation interacts intelligently with the boiler to reduce water temperatures, which increases efficiency without compromising user comfort.

Smart controls featuring automation and optimisation functions:
Automation is a control function that automatically adjusts time and temperature settings, based on occupancy detection, geolocation and/or stored data from user adjustments over time. Optimisation is a control function which starts the boiler operation at the optimum time to achieve the setpoint temperature at the start of the occupancy period.

Load Compensation:
Defined as a control function which maintains internal temperatures by varying the flow temperature from the heat generator relative to the measured response of the heating system. These devices measure the gap between what the internal temperature is and what the user wants it to be and modulates the boiler so that it only uses as much fuel as necessary to close the gap.
