Will I need to replace my boiler in 2025?

You might have heard that the UK is going to ban the use of gas boilers in new homes from 2025.

But what if you already have a boiler? Will you be forced to replace it before then?

No. The ban doesn’t apply to existing homes. Plus, you will still be able to install a new boiler after 2025 without breaking any laws.

Homes built before 2025 will not be affected

So, will you be affected by the ban? The answer is: probably not. A ban on gas boilers won’t be imposed until at least 2025, and as homes built before that year will not be affected, your current boiler should still work for a good few years yet. If you’re worried about needing to replace your boiler in the near future, you’ll be fine to install a gas boiler, as they will still be available after 2025.

You can still install a new gas boiler after 2025

If you have a relatively new boiler, it will likely continue working for many more years. You can choose to replace your old boiler before 2025 if you want to, but you won’t have to. If you do decide to install a new boiler before 2025, there are still some advantages to doing so:

  • A brand-new boiler will be less expensive to run than an older one that needs replacing.

  • The energy efficiency of the new boiler will allow it to heat up faster and use less energy than an older model.

Introduction hydrogen blend into the gas grid

In 2025, a 20% hydrogen blend will be introduced into the UK gas grid. Most modern boilers are already designed to run on a mixture of hydrogen and natural gas, so you can expect your boiler to continue to work just fine with the new blend.

In fact, you may even benefit from the change. Hydrogen is much cleaner than natural gas and doesn’t produce sulphur dioxide or nitrogen oxides when burned. These gases are responsible for acid rain and smog, so reducing their output should be a big win for public health and the environment.

A boiler installed now will be suitable for years to come

In conclusion,  you don’t have to worry about your boiler being outlawed any time soon. If anything, as long as you keep up with maintenance and have an efficient model (or upgrade when necessary), it will continue operating for many years to come.
