A ground source user guide for Leeds City Council’s new build homes
Providing heating and hot water to our homes currently contributes around 20% of carbon emissions in the UK, primarily through burning gas. If we’re going to meet our 2050 targets for reducing carbon to net zero, this has to change.
This is why the Government has set the introduction of heat pumps, and phasing out of gas boilers, as an important part of our transition to net zero.
In the context of Leeds City Council’s new build homes, this video explains what a ground source heat pump is, how it works, and why it’s a good thing, as well as some tips on how to operate the Kensa Shoebox.
