Gas Boiler

ban

Gas boilers are coming to an end and will not be able to be sold or bought brand new from 2035.

Creating A Greener Place To Live

Gas boilers will be banned from installation in new builds from 2025, and by 2035 the sales of brand new boilers will also be banned.

Domestic energy use is responsible for 14% of all carbon emissions in the UK, causing the government to make their plans to phase them out of homes to reduce the UK’s carbon footprint.

The plans mean that any home built after 2025 will need to have a low carbon alternative heating system installed, and although you can still use your old boiler after 2035, once it needs replacing, it will need to be replaced by one of the new alternatives.

What will be the alternative to gas boilers?

Air source heat pumps will be the best alternative to gas boilers as they have the same heating potential but are crucially run from low carbon electricity.

If you also have solar panel and storage battery system installed then this can power your air source heat pump as well, meaning you are saving money on both your energy bills and heating bills.
