New and replacement boilers

Making sure your boiler complies with Building Regulations

If you’re installing a new or replacement boiler in your home, you must fit a condensing one if it’s possible to do so.

What’s the benefit of a condensing boiler?

Condensing boilers are more efficient than other types of boilers, meaning your heating bills should reduce.

How can I find out whether a condensing boiler can be fitted in my home?

Ask an installer to carry out a simple assessment of your home.

Gas boilers should be installed by a Gas Safe installer.

Oil fired boilers should be installed by an OFTEC installer or you should make a Building Regulations application.
