What’s happening with gas boilers?

One of the most common questions we come across is “my boilers old but I’m worried that there going to ban gas boiler installations”

Below we hope to answer some of your questions and put your mind at rest.


Are gas boilers going to be banned?

No! 

This is scaremongering by the media and nothing boosts viewings or sells papers like headlines like “Boilers Banned“

To make it simple all new homes from 2025 can’t have Natural Gas boilers and will have to be heated by alternative methods such as heat pumps or a boiler that runs on Hydrogen or at least partially. However the rule of not fitting gas boilers only applies to new build homes, not existing homes.


When Is Hydrogen blend going to be introduced

The UK government is planning to replace natural gas with a hydrogen / natural gas blend because it’s more friendly to our environment. However don’t panic this won’t be intruded straight away it will be  introduced gradually over years to come and not all at once .


I still worried as need a new boiler now 

There is nothing to worry about some  of the biggest boiler manufacturers have alread started to make there new boilers  hydrogen ready. That means when the Government decide to introduce A Hydrogen blend your new boiler will be ready. 


What does ‘Hydrogen blend ready’ mean?

Hydrogen mix is a blend of hydrogen gas (20%) mixed with the (80%) of natural gas 


How much more expensive are Hydrogen blend boilers?
