Global warming – be part of the solution, not the problem
The race is on to save the world from the impact of climate change, and we all have a responsibility to join it.
From storms, fires and floods to melting ice caps and record-breaking temperatures, we’re already seeing the catastrophic effects of global warming caused by the way we currently live our lives.
Global temperatures have risen by 1°C and going forward the aim is to limit this to below 1.5°C. The UK has set a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
To meet this challenge will require huge change in the decades to come with a move away from our reliance on fossils fuels such as oil and gas.
Whilst we’ll need to revisit how we travel and produce food, the way we heat our homes and businesses is also a key area to focus on. In a relatively cold country such as the UK, heating consumes huge amounts of energy, emitting high levels of carbon into the atmosphere.
The first major change will come in 2025 when gas boilers banned in new homes, which will have to switch to renewable energy sources that draw their heat from the air, ground or sun. Other homes and business properties will be expected to follow suit.
Prestantia Eco is here to help you make the change to renewable and high efficiency heating.
Our installation services include:
- Air source heat pumps
- Ground source heat pumps
- Solar thermal hot water systems
- Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR Systems)
- A-rated gas boilers
- Underfloor heating
- Smart controls
Start cooling your energy bills too
Non-renewable energy is not only bad for the environment it’s also prone to huge price increases caused by global events. The less we rely on it, the more we’ll control and cut our spiralling bills.
Don’t be put off by the cost of installing a renewable energy heating system because help is at hand. Whilst installing a heat pump is currently more expensive than installing a traditional boiler, government grants are available to cover the additional cost.
Running from 2022 to 2025, the Boiler Upgrade Scheme will provide £5,000 towards the cost of an air source heat pump and £6,000 for ground source heat pumps. Click here for more details.
