STOVES AND HEAT PUMPS – A MARRIAGE MADE IN LOW CARBON HEAVEN

by Geoff Royle June 24, 2021 0 min read

Whether you like it or not heat pumps are coming. The government has big plans to make them play a major role in the UK's domestic heating mix. Carbon-loaded coal fired electricity generation is now virtually a thing of the past and next on the Governments hit list is doing away with fossil fuels, such as oil and gas. Since domestic heating is one of the biggest users of these fuels, then removing them from our homes has to be a priority.
