Re: Electric heating only?

We use solar thermal panels alongside our biomass boiler. In summer, one sunny day provides us with 2-3 days of hot water. Even in mid-winter a sunny day lifts the cylinder temperature to around 30c so we burn less wood heating it the rest of the way.

I remember when we changed over from "town" (coal) gas to natural gas. If you didn't get your boiler, gas fire and cooker adapted (free) you had your gas cut off until you did.

I should think so too as there was an explosion risk.
