1st Gas continue to work safely during the pandemic

The future of home heating - your gas boiler isn't being banned! 

The government hopes to stop selling new gas boilers after 2035, the good news is boiler manufacturers are already developing boilers that are hydrogen ready. This means they will run on gas and then when the time comes they will be converted to run on 100% hydrogen. Ministers say that people will not be forced to get rid of their gas boilers.

Shut out the cold with draught excluders, seal joins around windows, use letter box brushes 
Use warm furnishings such as carpets, rugs, heavy curtains and try to avoid putting furniture in front of radiators 
Make sure the loft is well insulated 
Use a smart thermostat to manage your energy usage
