Heat pumps are becoming an increasingly popular choice for rural housebuilders, however many developers have still never used heat pumps on their developments. With oil prices rising, and heat pumps becoming more desirable for homebuyers, we think now is a good time to scrap traditional oil and LPG boilers and make the switch to heat pumps.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, has today announced the Government’s commitment to ban fossil fuel heating from new homes by 2025. In today’s Spring Statement, Hammond confirmed the introduction of a new standard for new build homes will be introduced by 2025, in order to future-proof new build homes with low carbon heating, such as heat pumps.
According to the latest advice from Government advisors, new build homes should be banned from connecting to the gas grid within as little as 6 years in order to tackle climate change. As reported in the Times and the BBC, The Committee on Climate Change report, titled “UK Housing: Fit for the Future”, suggests that all new-build homes in the countryside should be heated by heat pumps, rather than traditional fossil fuel boilers.
