Calls for a ban on new gas boilers

The BBC today reported a suggested ban on new Gas boilers by 2025


Tackling climate change is a complex issue but the phasing out of old fossil fuel driven solutions will no doubt have to come.

The options that are going to form part of the future heating needs are not a ‘one size fits all’ solution and depend upon your home, your life style and what you can afford.

The BBC article can be seen here,
but sadly only identifies some of the technologies that are now, or are becoming available. If you want to start a serious conversation about your home (or business) heating; contact us now

Government continues to support Renewable Heating systems

If you are considering a Heat Pump to heat your home or business – there is still time to benefit from a Government grant through the RHI scheme

Renewable Heating Incentive

In the March 2020 budget, the government announced:

an extension to the domestic RHI for a further year to 31 March 2022
the introduction of a flexible, third allocation of tariff guarantees on the non-domestic RHI. The non-domestic RHI will close to new applications on 31 March 2021
