Properly built houses would use far less gas central heating as well.
It's in Hansard as well
You are correct and I never said you were wrong (read my OP again) all these exercises are a ground softening episodes before us Joe Public get hit with their true aims and the costs of it. No doubt these actions/proposals will be enhanced before 2025 and the effect will be broadened to existing homes and probably brought forward.pabenny wrote: ↑Tue Mar 19, 2019 11:50 amLet’s have the proper story:
From the releases accompanying the Chancellor’s Spring Statement: “the government will introduce a Future Homes Standard by 2025, so that new build homes are future-proofed with low carbon heating and world-leading levels of energy efficiency” *
There is no mention of prohibiting gas boilers or other gas appliances**
Increased energy efficiency saves householders money. Some measures are free (turning down the thermostat, turning off lights) or cheap (low energy lightbulbs, insulation). Yes, some measures such as solar panels or ground source heat pumps have very long payback, partly because they are costly to retrofit to existing properties.

** A report by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) suggests not connecting new build home sto the gas grid as one of seven measures for new build homes to address climate change. It also mentions eight measures for existing homes. (CCC is is an independent statutory body established under the Climate Change Act 2008 to advise government).
