Installer questions Boiler Plus

Dear editor,

As an installer complying with Boiler Plus, I find it hard to defend the argument that you would be better off improving the insulation to the property as opposed to spending money on smart controls etc, although it’s hard to argue against flue recovery. You can’t get anything for nothing, so how would load and weather compensation be a major improvement if the house has rubbish insulation?
