Cooking without gas
Replacing your gas hob with an electric hob is the first step to a gas-free home. Good electric hobs work with 2 or 3-phase power. If your connection is not yet suitable, have an electrician adjust your meter box for a fee. Are you planning to make your home completely gas-free now or in the future? Then it is wise to create an extra power group. Your meter cupboard is then immediately suitable for the heat pump that you need for heating your home with electricity.
To heat your home gas-free, you must first insulate it properly. Insulate the floors, the walls and place double glazing. The next step is to install a heat pump and low temperature radiators. A heat pump replaces the central heating boiler, but extracts the heat from nature instead of gas. Consider the heat in the air, soil and groundwater. There are considerable costs associated with a heat pump. Depending on the type of heat pump, the government does offer a number of subsidies.
