Explore low-carbon heating | Lower your bills and heat your home

From heat pumps to zero emission boilers, there are plenty of options to heat your home and help the planet.

If you're keen to free yourself from spiralling energy costs, heat pumps are an increasingly popular option for homeowners across the UK.

As well as being emission-free, air source heat pumps are one of the most efficient ways to heat your home. With traditional boilers running at around 90% efficiency rates, you're losing 10% of the heat generated by burning fossil fuels. Heat pumps have an efficiency rating of around 350%, meaning that the energy used to create the heat for your home is more than tripled!

Another energy-efficient way to heat your home is by opting for a zero emission boiler - Tepeo's Zero Emission Boiler (ZEB) is an electric heating system which stores heat until you need central heating or hot water (unlike other electric boilers, which heat water on demand).

Another exciting development in the heating world is infrared heating. Infrared heating uses thermal radiation throguh infrared rays – the same kind of heat emitted by the sun - to warm your home. This is different to traditional heat sources, which use convection to heat the air around them. Infrared heating means that no energy is lost by heating the air, as only the objects in your home (including you!) absorb the heat energy,
