Celebrate a Summer of Sport with Vokèra’s New Promotion

To celebrate an action-packed summer, Vokèra by Riello is launching its new Summer of Sport promotion for installers. Participants can redeem points to win sports-themed rewards such as store vouchers and football shirts, just in time to cheer for club or country. Vokèra is a leading manufacturer in quality home heating solutions, offering a comprehensive product range for domestic home heating and light commercial applications. Vokèra, through its parent company Riello Group, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

From the 1st May until 31st August, Vokera’s Affinity loyalty and reward programme members will receive points for every evolve or Vision combi or system gas boiler installed and registered. Multiples of three evolve or six Vision boilers will receive even more with bonus points.

Neil Mattock, marketing director at Vokèra, comments, “It’s great to be able to offer installers a new and exciting promotion for the summer. There is a great deal of sport ahead this summer, with World Cup football just around the corner. Installers can use their Affinity points against many sports-related items in a special area within the Affinity platform. This way, they’ll all have something to celebrate even if the football doesn’t go their way!”

The Vokèra Affinity is free to join and open to Gas Safe registered installers in the UK and Register of Gas Installers of Ireland (RGII) in the Republic of Ireland. By signing up for the programme, installers can register a Vokèra boiler for warranty, Gas Safe notification (UK only), and be awarded Affinity points on qualifying products. Any installers who are not currently members of the Vokèra Affinity programme gain 70 bonus points when signing up.

The state-of-the-art evolve combines Vokèra’s extensive knowledge of boiler design, performance and servicing to deliver a superior, cutting-edge boiler range. With both combi and system boilers, evolve suits a wide variety of domestic applications. The whole range is easy for installers to fit and homeowners to use.

The feature-rich Vokèra Vision combi and system boiler range is designed to be installer-friendly and suitable for a range of applications. Weighing between 27kg and 29kg, the Vision system and combi boilers are easy for installers to lift and fit into small spaces, such as a kitchen cupboard.

With both combi and system boilers, evolve suits a wide variety of domestic applications. The whole range is easy for installers to fit and homeowners to use whilst also being extremely energy efficient.

BOILER PLUS – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

From the 6th April 2018 the legislation around heating manufacture and installation in England is changing. Introduced by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the new Boiler Plus legislation will apply to retrofit and new installations in England only (new build is excluded).

Its objective is to raise standards of efficiency for domestic heating systems, to give consumers more choice over the way they heat their homes and to gain more control over their energy bills.

Boiler Plus requires a new minimum space heating efficiency for domestic gas boilers in English homes to be 92% as declared under the ErP Directive; whilst in addition, all boiler types must have time and temperature control. When installing a combination boiler, at least one of the four additional energy saving measures must be included:

  • Load Compensation – lowers boiler operating temperatures thereby improving efficiency in line with internal demand whilst maintaining comfort levels.
  • Weather Compensation – lowers boiler operating temperature in line with external air temperature whilst maintaining internal comfort levels. Air temperature can be drawn from an external sensor or internet derived.
  • Smart Controls (with automation and optimisation) – automation is a control function that automatically adjusts time and temperature settings, based on occupancy detection and / or stored data from user adjustments over time. Optimisation is a control function which starts the boiler operation at the optimum time to achieve the set point temperature at the start of the occupancy period.
  • Flue Gas Heat Recovery Systems (FGHRS) – recovering heat from waste flue gases to preheat domestic cold water entering the boiler, reducing energy needed to reach the required level for the domestic hot water.

Boiler Plus is a positive change and is definitely a step in the right direction in tackling climate change and keeping household energy costs down. The strategy aims to reduce carbon emissions across Europe, with the ultimate goal of achieving the EU’s 2020 targets.

Vokèra is here to help and can offer installers all four of the energy saving measures outlined within Boiler Plus, allowing consumers and installers alike to achieve compliance quickly and easily. For instance, the new evolve range, is A-rated and all models feature a space heating efficiency of 94% under the Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive. The Vokèra BeSmart Wi-Fi enabled thermostat offers automated home heating control and can be accessed via a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer. The majority of Vokèra’s boilers also come with pre-configured weather compensating technology and are OpenTherm enabled to help maximise efficiency.
