In preparation for the latest ErP regulations coming into force, Ideal Commercial has announced that it will be discontinuing its standard efficiency Pressure Jet Oil and Blown Gas boilers with outputs under 400kW. The Falcon and Harrier ranges will be discontinued along with one model from the Viceroy and Vanguard L ranges. However, customers will still be able to order replacement parts after the 31 December 2017 deadline.
As the aim of the new regulations is to ensure only energy-efficient, ultra-low NOx heating products are manufactured, the company says that this is an opportunity for contractors and installers to encourage their customers to move away from older models and introduce newer solutions.
As part of the 2015 ErP regulations, these boilers have been allowed to be sold without a burner as a replacement part in a like-for-like scenario, but this will no longer be the case after the end of year deadline. Any products already placed on the market prior to the deadline can still be sold, but Ideal Commercial is urging customers looking for these types of boilers to purchase what they need now before stock runs out.
Darren Finley, Chief Commercial Officer at Ideal Commercial Boilers, said: “We want our customers to be prepared for the regulations. If standard efficiency Pressure Jet Oil or Blown Gas boilers are still the preferred option there is still time to stock up, but we’re encouraging customers to use this as an opportunity to explore newer technology. Speak to us about our condensing boilers, including our Evojet condensing pressure jet range.”
