The media has been full of stories recently about a potential BAN on gas boilers by 2035.
In new homes, the plan is to bring that date forward a decade.
We’ve had loads of enquiries already about the various greener alternatives and in fact, we are installing a hydrogen boiler for a customer this week – this is seriously clever kit.

Well, there may be good news on the horizon.
A report in yesterday’s Daily Mirror revealed potential plans for a new “Clean Heats Grant” that will…

In the UK, hydrogen boilers are still in the testing phase but we’ve got our hands on some incredible kit that is the first “hydrogen ready” boiler in the UK.
