The science on climate change is very clear: human activity has already led to our entire planet warming by 1°C. We need to take swift action to slow down the rate of global warming, and reduce the impact of crises like rising sea levels, crop failures and loss of biodiversity.
This change is already beginning. The UK Government has set a target for net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
To help us reach this goal, gas heating for new houses will be banned by 2025. More and more homes will rely on electricity and renewables for their heating and hot water, and this mass transition to low-carbon heating must happen before 2030.
It’s an immense challenge. But together, we can all make the changes we need to achieve our ‘electric future’.
As homeowners, we need to improve our energy sustainability. And luckily, there are a few simple ways to take the first step.
But when the Autumn nights draw in, we increase the thermostat and our fuel bills go up. Now is the perfect time to think carefully about how you heat your house.
Making the switch from a central heating boiler to a heat pump is a sustainable choice, and increases the energy rating of your house. Our heat pump check only takes a few minutes, and helps you discover the energy-saving solution that’s best for your home.
