The UK government has set a target that the UK will be net zero by 2050, which will end up affecting most, if not all homeowners in the UK.

Around 14% of the UK’s carbon emissions comes from heating our homes, according to the Committee on Climate Change, so homeowners will eventually be required to make changes to their homes to improve their energy efficiency.
