Electric Heating for Architects

Legislation Changes

The UK Government has announced its goal to decarbonise the grid. Changes in legislation prevents the installation of gas boilers in new build developments as early as 2025 (2024 in Scotland) and has made a long awaited amendment to how SAP determines a properties ERP Rating – To almost the same as gas. These changes in legislation allows widespread use of electric radiators and electric boilers, which are known as having low installation cost in comparison to alternatives, low maintenance, no flue requirement, rapid heat up times and high efficiency.

The modern method of electric heating is predicted to be the future of home heating within the UK.

Internal Specification Team

Specifying an electric heating system for developments such as housing, student accommodation, social housing projects and private rental properties can be a time consuming and difficult task. Each development project requires a unique solution due to differences in building regulations, requirements, budget, time constraints and space constraints – No single solution will suit all developments.

A combination of our comprehensive range of electric heating products and our internal specification team can streamline the design process for architects. Our Internal Specification Specialists provide unrivalled support to architects and other planners. On receipt of receipt of scaled drawings, room dimensions, windows, insulation and construction U values, the EHC professional design team will provide the necessary heat loss calculations as required for a project. The bespoke design will outline which products are required and detail costings, dimensions, weight, and warranty information.
