It is a vital part of the boiler installation process, since April 2005 the ‘Boiler Compliance Certificate’ has become a document the installer must register and request by law under Building Regulations, an Act of Parliament.
From 1st April 2005, all gas boilers installed in England and Wales must be of the condensing type.
There exemptions contained within the Act of Parliament which still allow non-condensing boiler also known standard efficiency boilers to be installed, in these rare and unique circumstances we will advise on the appropriate solutions.
We can confirm that we are still able to install both non-condensing (standard efficiency) ‘Combination and System Boilers’. These boilers are not covered by a 10 Year Warranty
Why is the Building Regulations Certificate so important?
- It is a legal requirement, all boilers post April 2005 must have one
- When you sell your property your solicitor will ask you for a copy, if you don’t have it, it will take 3 – 4 weeks to obtain a copy, assuming the boiler was registered in the first place. This process means your home cannot be sold until the certificate has been issued, holding up the sale for 3 -4 weeks
