Another advert push for ECO3 and the installation of both gas lines (up to 23m) and new Worcester boilers. Is it REALLY worth doing given the total uncertainty and lack of direction as to where this is all going???
I have some tenants that may be within 23m of an existing gas line that currently are quite happy with full electric in their homes. For them I can’t say with any conviction their heating bills will be lower as (due to being on benefits) any supplier will not want to take them on a bill as you go customers, so more than likely they will have to have a PAYG meter anyway (which in ‘normal’ circumstances costs more). There is the upheaval of having it done too…
The other dilemma is if I am going to get clobbered later on as a direct result of now having gas installed. Of course, each property will have to have an annual gas cert, CO2 monitor, but longer-term there is the issue of hydrogen conversion?
With the government in complete disarray and not giving any substantive direction is it just best to wait for the EPC C to rear its head and then do something (most of the properties are currently a D so the issue is will a gas boiler actually raise this in any way to a C?)
Head spinning….any ideas anyone????
