Heating a Victorian House With Green Heating Solutions—Here’s How!

As winter always causes a huge dip in the temperature, we’re sure you’ve already taken all the necessary measures to keep yourself warm this snowy season. However, when it comes to heating a Victorian house, the concept of heating can be slightly different. Moreover, with the Government’s initiative to reduce carbon emissions, the need for green, energy-efficient heating solutions has also increased.

In the midst of all this, finding an energy efficient Victorian house heating system can be a little more difficult than usual. Hence, as one of the leading suppliers of energy efficient heating solutions in the UK, we bring you this article. 

Today, we are going to tell you all about some of the most energy-efficient heating solutions available to heat your Victorian home this year!

1. Ground or Air Source Heat Pumps

As incredible solutions for all your heating needs, ground source and air source heat pumps are becoming one of the most sought–after heating solutions. By effectively enhancing your home’s energy efficiency while also reducing your carbon footprint, these heating solutions are the way to go.

When using our high-quality air pumps, you can rest assured that your home will be warm for the winter while you also save a whole lot of energy and money. Moreover, you can also use our exceptional air source heat pumps for cooling during summer.

What’s more, with the latest boiler upgrade scheme, you can get vouchers for up to £6,000 on the purchase of our green heat pumps. Click here to learn more about the boiler upgrade scheme!

2. Solar Thermal Panels

Another great solution for obtaining energy efficient hot water all year round is the installation of solar thermal panels on your house. By effectively using solar energy to provide you with hot water, solar thermal panels can also work well with your current heating system. 

Although this may not be the typical all-round heating solution you may be looking for, it certainly makes heating water easier and greener.

3. Biomass Boilers

Biomass boilers are widely known for their carbon-neutral quality. This is because the carbon emissions emitted by them are absorbed by growing plants.

On the other hand, biomass boilers, while being an efficient source of heating for your Victorian home, also act as a way to dispose of wood chips, pellets and other biomass waste.

By using biomass, these boilers can provide you with energy efficient heating during winter and ensure that your home stays warm for a long period of time.

4. Consider Glazed Windows

Here’s one of the best ways to insulate your Victorian house! Considering double or triple-glazed windows for your Victorian house is a brilliant way to trap the heat inside while also allowing light to enter. Glazed windows, if you do not know, are tightly fitted sashes that come with one, two or three glass panes inside!

Furthermore, depending upon the type of glazing you get, sometimes, the glass panes are filled with specialised gases—like argon—to trap more heat inside. Thus, not only do glazed windows stop cold from entering the house but they also prevent heat loss. 

This, in turn, requires you to make less use of your heating system, leading to decreased energy bills and increased energy efficiency.

5. Underfloor Heating

When it comes to heating a Victorian house, underfloor heating is one of the most commonly chosen heating solutions!!

This is because underfloor heating can efficiently and evenly heat all areas of the house, without causing any cold or hot spots. Moreover, underfloor heating also allows greater flexibility and can effortlessly fit well with all home designs.

Finally, given the fact that it uses hot water piped through a grid, it saves a lot of energy, unlike other heating systems like radiators.
