Can I still replace my old gas boiler? And do I need to replace it before 2025?
Yes you can replace your existing gas-fired boiler and no, you don’t have to do this before 2025.
Gas boilers will not be banned from 2025. It is likely, however, that new build properties from 2025 will not achieve the 75% - 80% carbon reduction targets they have been given with a gas-fired boiler. Consequently, it is likely that new build properties will be heated with a renewable heating technology such as a heat pump.
Find out more about renewable heating technologies below.
A hydrogen-ready boiler is a gas-fired heating boiler which is capable of burning either natural gas or pure (100%) hydrogen.
A heat pump is a relatively new technology in the UK although they are widely used in Scandinavia and many parts of Europe where there is an abundance of renewably sourced electricity.
A hybrid heating and hot water system is a combination of two or more technologies generating heat to provide heating and hot water to the home or building.
Ready to choose greener heating?
From hybrids to heat pumps, it’s never been easier to make sustainable choices at home. With less carbon emissions and lower energy bills, we’re using new technologies to get you ready for a more responsible age of home heating.
Why should I replace my boiler now?
Our current range of highly efficient Greenstar gas boilers are able to run on a 20% hydrogen blend, so once you purchase a new Worcester Bosch boiler, you can be confident your boiler will run on gas for its lifetime.
This means, that if the government begins to increase the amount of ‘green gases’ into the UK gas grid, your customers can be confident their new gas boiler would run for its lifetime without any wholesale changes to switch to an electric boiler for example.
