PLEASE BE AWARE: On the 1st October 2019 the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government published a consultation on the Future Homes Standard, regarding changes to Part L (conservation of fuel and power) of the Building Regulations for new dwellings. The consultation set out two options to uplift energy efficiency standards. In each option Waste Water Heat Recovery for Showers (WWHRS) is stated as part of the suggested standard specifications package for Part-L compliance.
With this news, and because SAP is used by Part L to assess a buildings energy performance, it indicates that the importance of understanding the benefits and effects of using WWHRS in SAP are going to become essential. We will continue to monitor and report news on the progression of this on our news page and newsletter. As changes are implemented this course and all related content will be updated accordingly.
