A new boiler with built-in WiFi can run on gas and hydrogen, and could help homeowners to reduce energy bills and carbon emissions. 

Around 14% of the UK’s carbon emissions comes from heating our homes, and to help the UK reach net zero by 2050, the government will ban gas boilers in new-build homes from 2025, before phasing them out entirely by the mid 2030s.
