How the electrification of home heating provides a Net Zero opportunity
The electrification of home heating is gathering pace, and with it, the need for installers to upskill. Is this the right time to transition your business?
We think so and are here to help installers precisely do that.
The government wants 600,000 heat pumps installed in homes per year
from 2028 to help the country reach Net Zero goals.
There are also new regulations in place, since 15 June 2023, that require new-build homes to produce at least 31% less carbon emissions than before.
The installation of electric central heating systems is seen as an essential enabler to achieve this target, especially when combined with a renewable energy source such as a heat pump
or even solar PV
Nobody is saying that gas boilers are going away completely
anytime soon. They will no doubt be part of the solution for a long time – and installers will continue to gain business installing, servicing and repairing them. We will continue to stock boilers
from top manufacturers and provide boiler spares
, just as we always have done.
But for any business taking a long-term view, it’s pretty clear that the future of home heating is moving away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy source alternatives.

It is now growing and offers an indemnified design service along with unbiased advice on technologies and manufacturers.
It means that for installers wanting to understand how to transition their business, there is someone to talk to.
That’s crucial because there’s an ample opportunity for installers who upskill and become early adopters to grow their business – and take advantage of what will almost certainly be a growing market.
In fact, the industry and the country need them to do precisely that if we are going to achieve Net Zero by 2050.
