Deeside-based Redrow is to install heat pumps as standard in its new homes as the UK government prepares to ban new gas boilers.

From this month, detached homes on all of its new developments will be heated using air source heat pumps, marking a significant departure from traditional gas boilers.

This pioneering move will be implemented across Redrow’s developments nationwide, placing the housebuilder ahead of competitors in line with the UK government’s proposals to make all new build properties gas-free from 2025.



The introduction of air source heat pump technology is set to have the biggest impact on the efficiency of Redrow’s homes yet, as the company works towards achieving net zero carbon by 2050.

New research reveals that 74% of UK adults now believe that living in an energy-efficient home is more important than it was a year ago. Redrow, which builds over 5,000 new homes a year, has seen a surge in demand for energy-efficient features from homebuyers.

Redrow’s homes currently benefit from a 10% reduction in heat loss compared to its previous builds and are 63% more efficient than homes built in the 1970s.



The company is now looking to air source heat pumps to further increase the efficiency of its homes, which typically have a larger square footage than other new builds and work seamlessly with heat pump technology.

Redrow’s CEO, Matthew Pratt, said, “Redrow is committed to further improving the energy efficiency of our homes while maintaining our reputation for best in class build quality and design.”

“We will shortly go above and beyond regulatory requirements, future-proofing our homes and helping our customers lower their energy use.”
