K/504/4092 - Energy efficiency for gas fired and oil fired domestic heating and hot water systems

Qualification Certificate Expiry: None
Background:

This unit is designed to enable learners to understand, and be competent when carrying out the design of heating systems in accordance with Part L of the Building Regulations.

This is a CPD unit designed for operatives working within the Building Engineering Services industry and is a pre-requisite to some other qualifications in the renewables sector.

This qualification replaced the non regulated LCL Energy Efficiency for Domestic Heating (withdrawn 31/12/14) and is based on the current Approved Document Part L and Domestic Heating Compliance Guide.

Learner outcomes:
  • Know the regulatory requirements and sources of guidance for energy efficiency standards for gas-fired and oil-fired heating appliances connected to ‘wet’ heating circuits
  • Know the requirement of minimum boiler efficiency standards for gas-fired and oil-fired heating appliances connected to ‘wet’ heating circuits
  • Be able to determine if a non-condensing boiler installation would be acceptable
  • Know the requirement relating to space heating primary circuits type and design for gas-fired and oil-fired ‘wet’ heating systems
  • Know the compliance standards requirement for hot water storage vessels
  • Know the requirements relating to the preparation and water treatment of hot water systems and wet central heating systems
  • Know the requirements relating to the commissioning of hot water systems and wet central heating systems
  • Know the requirements of the minimum standards for the control of gas-fired and oil-fired wet central heating systems
  • Know the requirements of the minimum standards for the control of insulation of pipework for gas-fired and oil-fired wet central heating and hot water storage systems
  • Know the requirements relating to stand-alone, glandless heating system circulators
Pre-requisites:

None, but the target group for this qualification are those learners who are; Heating Engineers, Design Engineers and operatives in the Building Services Industry
