What’s the best heating solution for your home?
Chris Lovatt, Chief Operating Officer of E.ON Energy Infrastructure Services, discusses different heating solutions for your home to help you to decide how best to heat your home, whilst being as sustainable as possible.
For many of us, our gas boiler is the main way we heat our homes, and we couldn’t quite imagine our homes without them.
There are now around 23 million homes in the UK currently connected to the gas grid1, heating their homes using a boiler and gas central heating.
Our homes account for around 15% of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. And with the urgent need for action on climate change and the UK Government’s targets to achieve net zero by 2050, it’s crucial that we ensure we heat our homes in the most efficient way possible.
People are talking more and more about heat pumps and alternative ways to heat your home. And with the Government set to introduce a ban on installing gas boilers in new homes from 2025, it can often be confusing to know which heating solution to choose.
Here we look the different heating solutions available, to help you understand how best to stay warm and healthy at home, whilst being sustainable at the same time.
