Worcester animation to educate the consumer on the future of home heating

A new animation from Worcester Bosch has been created to help engineers educate customers on the future of home heating.

The government’s carbon reduction targets, and recent announcements around a future ban on natural gas boilers, have caused alarm among consumers about how their homes will be heated.

‘The Future of Home Heating’ is a short animation that, Worcester Bosch says, examines the facts behind the headlines. It reassures consumers that gas boilers will not be banned in existing properties from 2025, and looks at alternative technologies that may be introduced in the future such as 100 per cent hydrogen boilers or electric heat pumps.

Carl Arntzen, CEO of Worcester Bosch, said: “We are already hearing from engineers that their customers are raising concerns about the natural gas boiler ban. Some are even replacing boilers that are still only halfway through their lifetime.

“As the debate around reducing our carbon footprint and trials into new heating technologies continue, we felt that a simple explanation to homeowners of what the future of heating could look like was essential. If the UK rushes to replace their heating systems with heat pumps prematurely they may restrict themselves from switching to a more suitable technology such as 100 per cent hydrogen in the future.
