Heating our homes use a considerable amount of energy consumption; this is the main reason why the government and climate experts are putting more emphasis on encouraging homeowners to switch to powering their homes with low-carbon heating systems.

What is low-carbon heating?

Heating your home is normally provided using fossil-fuelled gas and oil boilers; however, to provide low-carbon heating, it relies on clean, renewable energy. These renewable technologies use natural energy to make electricity, making them more economically sustainable.

Clean energy methods such as air source and ground source heat pumps can minimise the carbon emissions we produce.

What are the best types of low carbon-heating options available?

Air Source and Ground Source Heat Pumps are fast becoming the most popular option for low-carbon heating in homes throughout the UK.

They work by absorbing heat from a natural source and transferring it to a fluid, which is compressed to increase the temperature further. The heat is typically transferred from the fluid into the water, which is then used to provide heating and hot water to your home.

What financial funding is available for homeowners?

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) is here, and we at Woodhouse Environmental can help you get on board! Switching to renewable energy is not only good for our planet but also for your pocket.

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) was launched in April 2022 to assist in the decarbonisation of residential and non-residential living spaces. This is to encourage homeowners to install more efficient, low-carbon heating systems in replacement of fossil fuel systems. It will provide upfront capital grants to support the installation of renewable energy such as air source and ground source heat pumps and, in some circumstances, biomass boilers. The BUS will be open to properties located in England and Wales

Through the Heat and Buildings Strategy, the government in October 2021 published plans to incentivise people to install low-carbon heating systems in a simple, fair, and cheap way as they come to replace their old boilers over the coming decade. Doing so will significantly reduce the UK’s dependency on fossil fuels and exposure to global price spikes, with the Government hoping to meet the net-zero emissions target by 2050.
