Exclamation 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.

Ms Denyer, who is standing in Bristol Central, told ITV’s The Leader Interviews:
“At the moment I have a gas boiler

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

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

A frequent flyer levy and a ban on short domestic flights are also part of the
party’s manifesto pledges to cut emissions by individuals.

Ms Denyer told ITV the transition to a low-carbon economy would mean
“certain activities will cost more”

Related to the issue.

Emma Thompson is the biggest hypocrite of them all. It's as if she is secretly taking the p***.

I really don't know what it is but somehow I have little liking for this Green co-leader.
I haven't been impressed any time I've watched or listened to her.

When pushed further to answer why, surely her answer was simply "Because heat pumps are rubbish".

Our clapped-out ancient 1970's hot water tank system boiler finally gave up last year and it's the first time I've been glad that our landlord is a massive cheapskate - because the rental agency priced up both a "state of the art" heat pump and economical low-energy-use hot water tank system, with the other option being a cheap 'n' cheerful new gas multipoint boiler.

They went with the cheaper option and we got the gas multipoint.

Unlimited hot water!! Yasss.

It feels like it was a blip in history. We used to have oldschool water tanks where the water ran out... then we had a few glorious decades of instant hot water... and now we've gone back to "new age" water tanks .

We just got a heat pump, I think it's pretty quiet actually, constant hot water and the house is a nice temperature all the time

When you say "just got", though... didyou have it before winter? Remember that they work by literally pumping heat from one place to another (anything above absolute zero is, technically, heat). Supposedly they still work fine in lower outdoor temperatures (but use more energy). In practice... they don't work as well in winter if the temperature drops significantly.

Literally just up and running the last few weeks so we've not tested it out over a winter yet. I'll update you in a few months

A politican who's a hypocrite - who could see that coming?!

But yeah, she and the Lib Dem lady have done a good job in convincing me to just scribble on my ballot paper instead of voting for one of their parties. Their performances in the debates make my teeth itch.
