Central Heating and Hot Water Installations: Applicable Regulations Part 2

Regulatory Provisions for Different Types of Heating Systems

The Domestic Heating Compliance Guide mentioned in part one of this article describes the provisions that new and existing buildings should comply with when installing or replacing central heating systems. In part one, we saw how gas fired systems should be installed and also listed the systems covered by the regulations. In this part we look at the provisions themselves.

Minimum Efficiency, Emission and other Standards to be Met

The regulations stipulate that new and replacement systems should meet certain minimum standards on different fronts. The provisions refer to SEDBUK values. What exactly is SEDBUK?

SEDBUK stands for Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK. It is a system that measures the efficiency of boilers in converting fuel to heat. SEDBUK includes a boiler efficiency table comparing the efficiencies of 3000 boilers.

The minimums to be met are listed below.

Table 1 of the Domestic Heating Compliance Guide:

  • Boiler efficiency
  • Hot water storage and labelling of storage vessels
  • System preparation and water treatment
  • Commissioning of the system

Table 2:

  • Boiler interlock, zoning and time control
  • Temperature control of the heating and hot water systems

Table 3:

  • Insulation of the pipework to comply with maximum permissible heat loss

The heating system of Gas fired range cookers with integrated central heating should also comply with the above regulations. In addition, the range cookers should have:

  • Two independently controlled burners (one for cooking and one for the boiler)
  • The boiler should have a SEDBUK value in excess of 75%

The Guide goes on to descibe the provisions applicable to:

  • Gas fired warm air heating and
  • Fixed independent space heating appliances.
