Household heating constitutes almost a third of the UK's yearly CO2 emissions, equivalent to the combined emissions of all petrol and diesel cars. Positioned as the low-carbon future for home heating, heat pumps offer a promising solution. To quantify the potential impact, British Gas has developed a calculator. Users can receive a personalized estimate of the CO2 reduction achievable by transitioning from traditional heating systems to modern heat pumps. The tool further provides context by comparing these savings to emissions from typical sources like long-distance flights and carbon-absorbing trees.
