As of 1st April 2018, the Government released a new legislation called Boiler Plus that all gas combi boilers installed also have to be installed with smart controls.

This is to ensure that boilers remain as efficient as possible and the boiler does not waste gas heating the home when it is not required. Each boiler manufacture has their own versions of smart controls that can be installed to ensure the boiler meets the criteria.

More information on Boiler Plus can be found on the government website.
