Part L Compliance & Electric Heating

Electric heating has a number of benefits over other fuels, for example it has low capital and installation costs because it does not require any pipework. But did you know it is often the simplest way to gain Part L compliance?

Lot 20 & The Ecodesign Directive

From 1st January 2018, the minimum efficiency standard is changing for electric heating. The aim of this legislation is to rule out inefficient technologies and reduce the energy used by the products that heat UK homes, helping to achieve overall carbon reduction targets.

To gain compliance, electric heaters will need to have a digital thermostat and seven-day timer as standard and benefit from the use of open window technology and anticipatory delayed starting or distance control.

Lot 20 Compliant Electric Heaters

The Q-Rad electric radiator incorporates the most advanced technologies to provide maximum comfort, benefitting from ‘Eco-start’ delayed anticipatory control, dual-element and open window technology, and an advanced touch control system containing a child lock.

The LST also boasts the above functionality, whilst also restricting its surface temperature to 43°C, as recommended by NHS guidance notes for use in specialist applications such as care and public facilities and around the elderly or young children.

Electric Water Cylinders

With both standard unvented indirect and direct models, there is an EC-Eau™ cylinder suitable for every application. Offering low running costs, reliable hot water and fantastic flow rates, EC-Eau™ cylinders are available in a wide range of capacities.

Environmental sensitivity and efficient performance are key attributes across the EC-Eau™ range, which boasts 60mm of low GWP insulation foam and innovative measures such as recessed immersions and thermostats to reduce energy wastage. This combined with the use of 100% recyclable stainless steel inner components and a sleek black, hard wearing outer shell manufactured from completely recycled materials ensures the EC-Eau™ range looks as good as it performs.

Edel Hot Water Heat Pump

The Edel range of heat pump cylinders comes in two sizes, 200L and 270L, producing hot water efficiently as it extracts heat from the external air supplied via insulated ductwork.

Due to its high efficiencies, it reduces the dwelling emissions in SAP, making it possible to pass part L building regulations with electric space heating and the Edel.
