Government Announces Ban on Fossil Fuel Heating for New Homes

Government Announces Ban on Fossil Fuel Heating for New Homes


Under new regulations gas boilers will be banned from all new homes from 2025 as unveiled by Philip Hammond in his spring statement.

In his speech the Chancellor of the Exchequer stated that the government will be introducing a Future Homes Standard that will apply to new dwellings.

Under the standard, new houses will have to be installed with “world leading” levels of energy efficiency and low-carbon heating, such as heat pumps rather than gas-fired central heating.

The move is designed to help to deliver the governments pledge to more than halve the energy use of new-build properties by 2030.


Expert Knowledge & Market Leading Products

At Oceanair we pride ourselves on our product knowledge and have decades of experience of working with heat pump technology. This knowledge allows us not only to correctly apply the technology but also to come up with innovate designs as demonstrated in our Carluccio’s case study which saved the customer thousands of pounds.

We work with two marketing leading manufacturers in Daikin & Panasonic who have a long track record of producing innovative and most importantly reliable products which you can depend on.

The Daikin Altherma line up is a vast range which can cater for almost any application and includes the new Altherma 3 which utilises the latest R32 refrigerant technology for ultimate efficiencies.

Panasonic’s product portfolio is equally as extensive and includes the unique T-CAP range which ensures that you will get full capacity from the unit all the way down to -15°C.


Free Training

The change in government strategy will require existing heating engineers to acquire new skills to design and install efficient heat pump solutions.

We believe passionately in training, that’s why we work with our manufacturers to deliver first class training to ensure you have the product knowledge you need for your business to thrive.

Operating out of manufacturer training centres across the country, the training allows engineers to get hands on to and gain an in-depth knowledge of the equipment.

If you would like to attend a training course email us on and we will get in touch to organise a suitable location and date.
