Decarbonising Home Heating

Fuel prices are constantly changing, creating uncertainties around future energy costs.‍

Improving the energy efficiency of home heating not only aligns with eco-friendly practices but can also significantly trim down energy bills.

Energy-efficient heating systems typically use less energy and produce fewer carbon dioxide emissions. Opting for a heating system powered by low-carbon fuel allows us to contribute to a healthier environment, actively participating in the fight against climate change, all while enjoying long-term savings on energy bills.

Our homes account for 40% of the UK’s carbon emissions. According to Ofgem, the average household uses 2,700 kWh of electricity and 11,500 kWh of gas in a year, leading to around 2,940kg of carbon emissions per home.

To meet the UK Government’s Net Zero 2030 targets, we need to reduce carbon emissions produced from heating by 95%. For this reason, many changes are being introduced to how we heat our homes, but there are a number of solutions and improvements that we can start making right now to achieve a more sustainable and energy-efficient home.

Let's get started and take a look at the different heating options available.
