Green Party Leader Admits She Has Gas Boiler, Not Heat Pump

The Green Party leader has admitted that she still has a gas boiler despite her party’s commitment to reach Net Zero by 2040. The Telegraph has the story.

Carla Denyer, the co-leader of the Greens, has insisted she is “in the process of getting quotes” for an air source heat pump.

But she told ITV that she had put replacing it “on pause” during the General Election and that she would revisit it once the campaign was over.

Ms Denyer, who is standing in Bristol Central, told ITV’s The Leader Interviews: “At the moment I have a gas boiler and I’m literally in the process of getting quotes for replacing it with an air source heat pump.

“I’ve had to put that on pause during the General Election as you can imagine, but I, yeah, literally have quotes in my email inbox.”

The Green Party has pledged to invest £9 billion over the next five years for heat pumps and other heating systems to be put into homes and other buildings.

The party will also campaign for house builders to include “low carbon heating systems such as heat pumps” in all new homes “where appropriate”.

Its manifesto reads: “Our energy bills are far too high because we have the worst-insulated homes in Europe.

“We would bring down bills by reducing the loss of heat from homes, because the cheapest bill is the one you don’t have to pay.”

Heat pumps have been criticised for failing to properly warm larger, older properties and for being noisy, as well as being expensive.

A report in July 2022 by the Climate Change Committee found the running cost of a heat pump is 10% higher than that of an average gas boiler, equating to £100 more a year.

Heat pump installation typically costs between £10,000 and £15,000, compared to £2,000 to £4,000 for replacing a gas boiler
