New homes standard to make heat pumps mandatory

The UK government has ruled that gas boilers will be banned in all new homes built after 2025. The “future homes standard” will require all new builds to have low-carbon systems, such as electric heat pumps. The ruling is part of the government’s ten-point initiative to help the UK reach its target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. From 2021 all new homes will be expected to achieve a 31% reduction in carbon emissions. Heat pumps are expected to play a key role in delivering heat for properties that are built to the Future Homes Standard.
