The UK is a global leader in the gas boiler market, which has continued to develop cutting edge technologies that now exceed the minimum standards set last decade. Raising standards will maintain this strong market position, as a global leader, and will ensure English homes provide people with the advances they expect and the comfort they deserve. The Boiler Plus policy achieves this while reducing fuel consumption, meaning that bills will fall and carbon emissions are curbed. By offering consumers a choice of technologies, they can choose a setup that best fits their lifestyle, and by ensuring all households have heating controls in place, we can help drive down bills.
