Grants of £5,000 are now available for people wanting to replace their oil and gas boilers with heating systems that don’t rely on fossil fuels.
As of April 2022, the UK Government’s new £5k grants for heat pumps are available in England and Wales. Take-up should hopefully be huge. With energy prices soaring, the rush to ditch gas boilers and move to eco-friendly heat pumps is on. To get your home ready, preparation is key.
The issue of rising gas prices has dominated the news for many months and the energy crisis is not going away. The UK’s biggest energy supplier, Centrica, has said that soaring energy prices could last up to two years but we are not powerless. Energy efficiency measures save fuel, cut energy bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Making sure your home is properly insulated is one of the easiest ways to reduce your energy consumption, and it could knock a big chunk off your energy bills, too. Here’s how much you could stand to save.
Long summer days are the perfect time to get the most out of solar panels. And over the last 25 years the cost of installing them has dramatically reduced. As a result, solar power is the world's fastest growing energy source.
Lighting accounts for 20% of all the energy consumption in the UK and there’s increasing talk about LED bulbs these days. So what is it about LEDs (Light-Emitting Diodes, if you want their full name!) that makes them such an all-round good option?
With carbon emissions from heat up for the second consecutive year in the UK, we urgently need alternative heating sources. So how do we switch from fossil fuel reliance to renewable energy heat?
Around 90% of customers in the UK are with one of the “Big Six” energy suppliers and a third of all customers are on a standard variable tariff. This is an indefinite contract and the most expensive way possible to buy the exact same gas and electricity that everyone else is using.
Switching to a green energy supplier is a great step you can take to tackle climate change, and it could benefit your budget too. It really couldn’t be simpler and with new advances in green energy innovation, there are plenty of providers to choose from. Here’s how.
Not all wood stoves are created equal and it is good to know that some wood stove manufacturers have been working hard to not only improve the aesthetic appeal of their products, but to reduce the impact caused by particulate emissions.
