Switching to electric heating from gas

Hi. I have a combi gas boiler for hot water and heating. As I'm a bulb customer and all of my electric comes from fossil free sources, would it be more environmentally friendly to switch to electric radiators and replace the gas boiler for an electric one?

  • Today, probably. In the future almost certainly. Many people think the future of heating is electricity. That said, most people don't think electric heaters are the technology we will be using. We are likely to move to using heat pumps which can either run through upgraded radiators or ideally underfloor heating. The upfront capital cost is large, but will probably pay for itself over time.
