New boiler 'can cut household carbon emissions'

New boiler 'can cut household carbon emissions'
A new boiler may help a household to reduce its carbon footprint, a utility firm spokesman has suggested.

Julian Mears of British Gas said there are a number of advantages to installing an energy-efficient boiler, including reduced carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

"We know that … about 25 per cent of a household's CO2 emissions is really down to energy - it plays a part, and the more energy-efficient your boiler is, the less harm you are doing to the environment," he said.

He added that new boilers come with an A rating, which means they are generally "cleaner" than older models.

Last June, former prime minister Tony Blair signed a draft Climate Change Bill, which outlined plans to reduce domestic and international carbon emissions by 60 per cent by 2020.

Current government plans aim to make all new-build homes carbon-free by 2016.

Meanwhile, British Gas announced this year that it intends to develop fuel cell-powered boilers, which can produce up to two and a half tonnes less CO2 emissions than standard models.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18514707-ADNFCR
