HETAS Guide Survey
It’s been a few months since we published the HETAS Guide 2017. HETAS constantly strives to provide installers, retailers and manufacturers with useful information in the Guide and the online search function. We would really like your thoughts on the current Guide and how you use it so we can continue to provide you with the information on appliances to assist you in completing a safe and compliant installation.
The survey will take less than five minutes to complete and your feedback is very much appreciated.

Heat Hero Gets HETAS Listing
Heat Hero is the latest product to be listed in the HETAS Guide under Link-Up Systems for Heating & Hot Water.
The product is a unique system based on manifold injectors in two installed units that enable circulation around a solid fuel fired heating system to be maximised as well as gravity circulation around the hot water storage cylinder when the heating/radiator system is not energised. It contains no moving parts or any electrical components. Where required, it enables a secondary heat source, such as a gas or oil fired boiler, to be linked into the system with the solid fuel boiler.

There are no specific technical standards for assessing the design, production or performance of this type of equipment although there do exist standards for the individual components from which the devices are built up. For example, plate heat exchangers, pipes and fittings and electrical components. It is therefore not a requirement that the equipment is CE Marked.
The listings given in the HETAS Guide are based on the manufacturer demonstrating satisfactorily that their product is safe and fit for the purpose of serving a boiler red by biomass or solid mineral fuel. This will normally be an assessment by an independent authorised competent organisation such as a Notified Body. In the absence of any regulatory standards for the design, production or performance of the equipment listed it is not possible for HETAS to approve it. The listing is therefore simply a recognition that the manufacturer has taken all necessary steps to ensure their product is safe and fit for its purpose when installed in accordance with their instructions.

HETAS Guide 2017 is coming
The 2017 edition of the HETAS Guide will be launched at Ecobuild at the start of March. Ecobuild is the UK’s largest and number one event for specifiers across the built environment and takes place at ExCeL, London from 7th March.
Speaking about the new Guide, Bruce Allen says “We are committed to achieving industry best practice for our registrants, and most importantly, our customers. We receive lots of positive feedback about the benefits of using the Guide and will continue to improve the Guide and the online search facility.”
“The new format of the Guide is more accessible allowing all users information in a clear to understand way.”
In addition to the new Guide, the HETAS interactive search facility has been enhanced. This search also includes appliances that have been verified on the new Ecodesign Ready Scheme. Take a look at the upgraded search facility at www.hetas.co.uk/find-appliance.
Copies of the HETAS Guide 2017 will be sent out to our registrants over the coming weeks, with additional copies available via the HETAS Shop from March.
