Boiler Plus

What is Boiler Plus?

Boiler Plus is a set of standards being implemented in England from 1st April 2018 that aim to improve the way that people use energy in their homes by giving them a greater choice on how they maximise energy efficiency in their homes.

Boiler Plus aims to drive the market towards the highest performing boilers and provides households with a level of choice over how they implement energy efficiency measures.
