ErP help and advice

ErP help and adviceThe Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive brought a number of changes to the way businesses operate within the heating industry. Our help and advice section covers everything you need to know.

  • What heating systems will need a package label? 
  • How can installers produce the label?
  • Will installers need to consider existing products in the property?
  • How long will it take to make the calculations?
  • Will installers be able to buy 'packs' of ErP products?
  • Who will police the ErP Directive?
  • Will ErP cost installers money?
  • How long will it take installers to do?

It is a legal requirement to comply with Building Regulations, failure to do so could result in enforcement action. Further information on compliance and competent persons is available here.

There is also a duty on the householder to comply with Building Regulations please refer to the previous question for further guidance.

Because the method of calculation for boiler efficiency is different for all three ratings.

Our product training courses include an overview of the changes to the Building Regulations and what is required to comply. We will also provide information on our websites.

Flue Gas Heat Recovery (FGHR) is an energy efficient device that recycles the heat from the flue gases which would normally be expelled into the atmosphere and uses it to preheat domestic hot water.

Weather compensation is a device that communicates between the boiler and an outside temperature sensor. It tells the boiler to alter the flow temperature in relation to the weather outside, leading to fuel saving and a consistent environment.

Load compensation works by measuring the response of the heating system and controlling the flow temperature depending on the required load. When the boiler first fires, the increase in the return temperature is measured, giving an indication of the required load, and the boiler varies the flow temperature accordingly. The changes in the return temperature are then monitored and the flow temperature adjusted accordingly. This can reduce fuel consumption.

uSense complies with Boiler Plus when it is connected using Open Therm, because it provides load compensation functionality.
