Move toward zero-carbon with our electric heating options

Whether you're already electric or looking to make the switch, we can help you lower your carbon footprint:

Your electric heating options

With the UK boiler ban on the horizon and government subsidies for heating to support the switch to low-carbon alternatives like for electric cars, the range of electric heating options is increasing.

Air Source Heat Pump outside couples home

Air source heat pumps

Air source heat pumps create heat from outside air. Unlike a new gas boiler, they can last for 20 years or more(1), save you £1,525 over 10 years and put 65% less carbon(2) out into the world.

Starting from £8,999 for an average 3 bed home: includes 7kw low-temperature Air-Souce Heat Pump, installation, new water tank and radiators with a 5-year warranty.

Hybrid heat pumps

Upgrade to a hybrid heat pump that works with your existing Oil/LPG boiler, meaning you fill up less often, costing you less and reducing your carbon footprint. You can also qualify for a £1,610 grant.

Why choose electric heating?

The greener choice

As the Britain’s biggest generator of zero-carbon electricity(3), we're fully supportive of the government's Net Zero ambition - our electric heating solutions will help you lower your carbon footprint and heat your home in a more sustainable way.

More efficient than a boiler

While gas might be cheaper, even the newest boilers are only 93% efficient. Air source heat pumps though, are up to 3.5x more efficient(4) and turn one unit of electricity into 3.5 units of heat. Save £1,548 over 10 years and reduce your carbon emissions by 64% against a new boiler(2).

Zero-carbon tariffs

With a full electric home, you pay one standing charge and get one easy to understand bill. You have more tariffs to take advantage of, like Economy 7, and if you get a smart meter you could get new time-of-use tariffs with cheaper rates.

Electric heating advice

Insulation available on the ECO scheme

Insulation and electric heating

Low carbon heating works brilliantly but a house with no insulation loses around 33% of its heat through walls and 25% of heat through the roof(5). Get insulation installed and save up to £530 per year on bills(6).

You may be eligible for govenment grants to help subsidise your upgrades.
