Oil boiler heat loss calculations for installers 

Grant UK has published new online content to support heating engineers and installers who need to complete heat loss calculations for their oil boiler installations.  

Oil boiler heat loss calculations have been published online for installers.

A new blog and free eLearning module are now available, which talk through the steps involved with completing an oil boiler heat loss calculation.  

The changes to Part L Building Regulations which came into effect earlier in June stipulate that a full room by room heat loss calculation needs to be carried out before installing an oil or gas boiler.  

Guiding installers in how to use the tool 

To help installers with this new step, Grant UK has developed an oil boiler heat loss calculator tool, which is available to download. In addition, a new blog and eLearning module are also now online which guide installers through the calculator tool and how to use it.  

In the blog, Grant UK’s assistant training manager, Steve Ellison, provides a step-by-step guide to using the oil boiler heat loss calculator. He also explains the purpose of a room-by-room calculation, giving engineers a context to this process.  

Meanwhile, to support the blog, a free ten-minute eLearning module is available. This on-demand tutorial provides a visual step-by-step guide to the calculator, talking through each of the tabs within the tool and providing an explanation for the data input which installers need to complete.
