Having an efficient heating system running on a low carbon fuel is one of the most important steps you can take to reduce your fuel bills and your carbon dioxide emissions.
In a typical household, over half of the fuel bills are spent on heating and hot water. An efficient heating system that you can control easily can help reduce your fuel bills and reduce your carbon emissions.
If we are to reach the net zero carbon emissions target set by the UK Government, we will need to reduce the carbon emissions from heating our homes by 95% over the next 30 years.
To put this into perspective, the average household generated 2,745kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) from heating in 2017. By 2050, we need to reduce this to just 138kg per household.
There are likely to be significant changes ahead to how we heat our homes to meet these targets. In the meantime, there is a lot you can do right now to make your heating system more energy efficient, saving yourself money on your fuel bills, as well as reducing your carbon emissions.
