Bollino Blu: what it is and when to do it
The blue sticker is a sticker that is affixed to the boiler maintenance certificate . It is released by authorized technicians who measure energy efficiency and analyze the fumes emissions during the ignition of the boiler, verifying that everything is in compliance with the law (Presidential Decree 74/2013 which regulates, control, overhaul and maintenance of boilers and air conditioners .) When you install a new boiler, the first sticker is automatically released by the technician who carries out the installation of the system.

Subsequently, the blue sticker must be periodically renewed on the basis of European legislation which establishes the frequency with which checks must be carried out on energy performance (European Directive 2002/91 / EC implemented by Legislative Decree 192/05, integrated and amended by D .Lgs. 311/06). This depends on the type of boiler we have installed in the house:

every 4 years for gas, methane or LPG boilers with power between 10 and 100 KW
every 2 years for gas, methane or LPG boilers with power exceeding 100 KW
every 2 years a liquid fuel boiler (eg diesel) or solid (eg wood, coal, pellets) 10KW and 100KW.
every year if the liquid or solid fuel boiler exceeds 100 kW of power
Warning! The Blue Stamp does not replace the revision of the annual boiler which is obligatory by law (always due to the DPR 74/2013).

Who can release the Blue Stamp
