An interesting article about the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), drawing attention to why people normally change boilers. The whole Green Deal, has been set-up to benefit the biggest energy companies not local tradesman or the public themselves. I think this just shows the Government are not really serious about reducing the country’s carbon footprint.

The next ten years must see a revolution in the way we heat our homes. A third of the UK’s carbon emissions come from heat, and we will need to both reduce the amount of heat we use in homes, and change the way we produce it, if we are to have any chance of meeting our carbon targets.
The Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is intended to help achieve this by providing financial incentives to homes and businesses to replace their current heating with a renewable system, such as a heat pump, a solar thermal installation, or a biomass boiler.
