We've worked so hard to achieve these awards and we can't thank those who support us enough! ImpraGas always has the customers best interests in mind and we aim to provide a 5-star customer experience to all who use our service. 

ImpraGas was launched in 2012 by our founder Joseph Valente, winner of the BBC Apprentice 2015. It was created with the aim of changing the public perception of the average 'Gas Man' or 'Salesman' and always putting the customer first. To suit this, all of our packages include everything a customer need to ensure their new boiler is a sound investment, giving them a 10-year peace of mind.

The aim of ImpraGas is to become the UK's leading boiler specialists. Our team dedicates itself to delivering outstanding service, focusing on quality, reliability, honesty, value for money and high-quality workmanship. As we only install boilers and central heating systems, we are now experts in installations and masters of this sector.

Supporting the local community is incredibly important to us at ImpraGas, so we're very pleased to become an award-winning company which can help those around us. Our founder, Joseph Valente recognises the importance of giving back and so we work to help local charities, school engagements and provide young children with an insight as to what the plumbing industry is all about. Joseph himself even attends local schools to speak about apprenticeships, plumbing and how to inspire the young entrepreneurs among us.

Once again, thank you to everyone who supports ImpraGas on our journey. We hope you'll be seeing a lot more of us in the future!

NSPCC Charity

“The NSPCC wants to protect children at risk, to help children who’ve been abused rebuild their lives, and to find the best ways to prevent child abuse from happening in the first place.That’s why we’ve chosen the NSPCC to be the ImpraGas Charity of the Year 2018.”

Joseph Valente, Managing Director

At ImpraGas, we share the NSPCC's belief that all children should be kept safe. Throughout 2018, Joseph Valente and the team at ImpraGas will be supporting the NSPCC to help raise awareness and funds which are vital to keeping children and young people safe across the UK.

We at ImpraGas also value the importance of happy families. We believe that children and happy families are the key to a loving home. Impra is a part of people's daily lives - your boiler is at the heart of your home, and we hope we can be an addition to the happiness each household should experience.

How are we supporting the NSPCC this year?

Joseph Valente has provided a number of motivational talks across schools in the UK. Having been expelled from school when he was only 15, Joseph empathises with the work NSPCC does to support the children and young people who are struggling. That's why this year we have made NSPCC our Charity of the Year and will do what we can to help their cause.

  • We will continue to donate to NSPCC Childline and the Speak Out Stay Safe campaign.
  • Organising various staff fundraising opportunities including the Three Peaks Challenge, Skydiving, the Rutland Family Bike Ride and even just humble cake sales!
  • The ImpraGas team have recently signed up to the NSPCC campaign which supports children's mental health and encourages the Government to provide more funds for Childline. Sign the petition.
  • Continuing to utilise our social media to raise awareness of these campaigns.
  • Joseph will continue to visit schools and help raise awareness and support children who need it most.

We hope that you will help us support the NSPCC this year and donate to our JustGiving page. The NSPCC works tirelessly to prevent child abuse and help those who have suffered rebuild their lives. Please help us help them to continue to protect children who are at risk.

Boiler Plus

In April this year, the new Boiler Plus legislation will come into effect. It is launched by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and aims to improve the way people use energy within their homes. But what exactly is Boiler Plus? 

The Boiler Plus legislation aims to give consumers more control over their energy bills by making it easier to reduce energy bills. It also aims to get rid of poorly performing products in a bid to help achieve the EU’s 2020 target of reducing carbon emissions across Europe. To deliver this, the heat sector needs to reduce its carbon emissions significantly, as it currently contributes to 19% of final UK greenhouse gas emissions. 

This legislation wants to raise the bar for both manufacturers and installers and requires the new minimum performance standard for domestic gas boilers in England to have an efficiency level of 92% ErP at least.

So, what are the Boiler Plus requirements? 

By their own admission, BEIS wants the UK to maintain it’s position as the global leader in the gas boiler market. It believes this can be done by introducing the Boiler Plus standards, which include:

  • All Gas Boilers in existing systems in England have to meet an ErP efficiency of at least 92% 
  • Timers and thermostats are a requirement in all gas and oil systems and should be installed at the same time as the boiler
  • All new fitted combination boilers should include either a flue gas heat recovery system, weather compensation, load compensation or smart controls 
Here’s a bit more information about the additional energy efficiency systems needed in combination boilers:

Load Compensation – a boiler control which adjusts the temperature of the water which heats your radiators. The temperature will be regulated accordingly depending on the temperature of the room.

Weather Compensation – this system monitors the weather outside using a sensor and adjusts the heating temperature of the radiators depending on the temperature outside. 

Flue Gas Heat Recovery Device – connecting to the flue outlet, this unit uses a heat exchanger to extract leftover energy from the waste flue gases. This energy then warms the cold water in the combination boiler and reduces the amount of gas needed to increase the temperature. 

Smart Controls with Automation and Optimisation – a smart thermostat allows the heating to control itself depending on a variety of factors. It can be paired with electronic thermostatic radiator valves and can even divide a home into different heating zones. 

Only one of these additional energy efficiency options need to be installed alongside a new/replacement combination boiler to comply with the Boiler Plus legislation.

The new Boiler Plus standards will only affect those installing new boilers or replacing an old boiler. If you have an old boiler, there is no requirement for you to replace your existing boiler, but if you do the BEIS wants to ensure you can be confident that you are ‘investing in an efficient product that will keep [your] bills as low as possible’. 


What do installers need to do? 

Before the Boiler Plus legislation becomes law, installers need to ensure they understand exactly what the scheme entails and work by the standards listed. 

If installers and homeowners do not comply with the Boiler Plus requirements once the legislation is launched in April 2018, they will be breaking the law and could face prosecution. This will be enforced by Building Control and any safety concerns can be raised to the HSE. Furthermore, homeowners who knowingly allow non-compliant work to be carried out could face a charge of up to £5000

It is important to discuss Boiler Plus with your customers prior to installation even if this is before April 2018. Customers may not want to miss out on an energy efficient boiler by just a couple of weeks. The initial installation cost may be slightly higher, but the BEIS believes this can be ‘met with a one-off payment as little as £50’ and can be ‘made back through the savings in bills’.

Gas Safe Registered

In order to work as a gas engineer, you must - by law - be Gas Safe Registered. The Gas Safe Register is an official list of gas businesses and individuals who are registered to legally work on boilers, cookers, and other gas appliances. It was brought in to replace CORGI in 2009.

The Register was put in place to protect the public from unsafe gas work and unqualified engineers. In order to join the Register, you must provide evidence of your competence in gas engineering; if an unregistered business or individual attempts to carry out gas work, they may be prosecuted for breaking the law and putting people's safety at risk.

How do you become Gas Safe Registered?

In order to get on the Register, you must first provide evidence of your industry-recognised qualifications. To see a list of accepted qualifications, visit the Gas Safe Register website.

Registration lasts for one year, so engineers and installers must renew their registration annually in order to stay on the Gas Safe Register.
