Gas set to be replaced by low-carbon heating in new UK homes after 2025
New homes built after 2025 will not be allowed to use gas heating. Gas boilers will be replaced by low-carbon heating systems in all new homes built after 2025 in an attempt to tackle the escalating climate crisis, Chancellor Philip Hammond has said.
In his spring statement, the chancellor said new properties would use alternative systems, such as heat pumps, to help the UK reduce its carbon emissions.
The move away from gas heating in new homes was given a cautious welcome by environmental groups, and housebuilders said they supported moves to more environmentally sustainable systems.
