Did you know that from 1st January 2018 the new legislation came into force that changed installed domestic heating?
As from 1st January 2018 the new Lot 20 legislation came into effect.
This is an EU wide regulation aimed at helping the UK meet it commitment to reducing carbon emissions by 20% by 2020.
Lot 20 regulations affect the following electric heaters:
✓ Storage Heaters ✓ Direct Acting Heaters ✓ Portable Heaters
✓ Radiant Heaters ✓ Electric Fires ✓ Under Floor Heaters ✓ Infra-red Heaters
The large majority of installed electric heaters such as storage heaters and panel heaters will no longer be compliant and all installs from 1st January 2018 must meet the standards of Lot 20. The new products installed will have to have digital controls, user programmable temperature controls with seven-day timers, adaptive start controls and open window detection.
