Direct acting electric heating is one hundred per cent efficient when it comes to converting fuel into heat. Additionally, because it only gives out precisely the heat required, exactly when it is needed in the places it is required, it is also one hundred per cent effective.
There was a report put out fairly recently by the Zero Carbon Hub on carbon compliance for the homes of the future. It showed how decarbonisation of grid electricity, something we talked about in our last post, will influence our choice of heating system over the next four decades.
Electric Heating to be the Option of Choice by 2028
What they’ve said in this report is that by 2028 we will reach a point where gas powered systems will no longer support carbon compliance and that at this point, electric heating technologies will be the option of choice.
In the scheme of things, that point is not really far off. Precisely why property developers are making electric their heating and hot water system of choice NOW. There are numerous benefits you can enjoy already when opting for electric heating over gas and you’ll find lots on this blog so have a read.
