Could Far Infrared Solutions foot the bill for home heating?

Could Far Infrared Solutions foot the bill for home heating?
16/09/2020

A recent report by the Committee for Climate Change called for a ban on domestic gas boilers by 2025. The report – UK Housing: Fit for the Future? – wants the government to ensure that new homes are not connected to the gas grid and that domestic heating is decarbonised by switching to electric heating and away from gas boilers.

In his Spring Statement, Chancellor Philip Hammond also said new standards should “mandate the end of fossil fuel heating systems in new homes from 2025, delivering lower carbon and lower fuel bills”.

So what is the answer to this fossil fuel problem? There are several ‘renewable’ energy solutions available in the market today including hydropower, wind power, solar power, geothermal energy and bioenergy. All of them are suitable in certain circumstances, but not all are suitable for most developments, as they can be costly upfront, take up a lot of valuable land space and have high ongoing maintenance costs. For the majority of UK builders, these options are going to be reserved for top-of-the-range projects. But what about the 60 -70% of other new build affordable houses and flats? What about the retrofit market?

An alternative is quick-fix, easy to install and no-maintenance electric underfloor heating (UFH) and far infrared heaters (IR).
