Oxford Left in the Cold: British Gas Outages Unveiled! Winter Woes?

“Ever wondered what the carbon footprint figure of a person in a year in the UK?

The UK government quotes it to be about 6 tonnes per person per year. (Source: Carbon Independent). The government aims to “fully decarbonise” Great Britain’s electricity system by 2035 and there is a need for it too. 

With that in mind, British Gas has its carbon reduction plan and is working towards a net zero business. After all, British Gas is the biggest energy and home services provider in the United Kingdom and has been serving around twelve million homes in the country.

In July 2023, Chris O’Shea, the chief executive of Centrica, the company which owns British Gas stated that a combination of low wind and cold weather could lead to insufficient gas-fired generation to meet electricity demands. He remarked, “If we have a very cold spell in the winter along with no wind then we may not have enough gas-fired generation to generate the electricity, we need a lot of technologies to have a resilient electricity system.” (Source: Energy Live News)

This journey of reducing carbon emissions has been long going on and it necessitates the transition of moving the country away from natural gas and fossil fuels and towards electric energy sources. However, Kiasa Heating Solutions is a part of this journey. Our infrared heating panels and bars are very valuable in the process of decarbonisation of heat energy.

Low-carbon energy heating systems are crucial for reducing carbon emissions and transitioning away from fossil fuels. Kiasa offers a range of infrared heating panels and bars that effectively contribute to the decarbonization process. Infrared heaters work by emitting electromagnetic radiation that directly heats objects in the room, rather than heating the air. This makes them highly efficient, as they don't waste energy heating unnecessary spaces or objects. By switching to infrared heating, we can achieve significant reductions in our carbon footprint while maintaining comfortable living conditions.

Discover the Warmth of Infrared Heating for Your Home!

Infrared heating systems employ panels that use infrared light, similar to the way the sun operates. This is a much more efficient method of heating compared to conventional approaches due to several reasons. Infrared heating generates heat by emitting light that is outside the visible spectrum of our eyes. This type of heating is effective because our skin and clothing absorb the light, much like being in the sun versus being in the shade. If you are indoors or in the shade, you will not absorb the sun's light, and as a result, you will not warm up.

Electric infrared heating is a highly efficient and sustainable heating option for homes and buildings. It works by emitting far infrared waves from a unit on the wall that gradually heats up. The heat is emitted across a large surface area and reaches an optimal temperature to comfortably heat objects and the air. Unlike traditional heating systems, infrared heaters have no moving parts, fans, noise, or visible light, making them a quiet and low-maintenance option.

One of the many advantages of infrared heating is that it can significantly reduce your energy bills. It's fully controllable and can be integrated into a home's smart control system, allowing for individual room temperature adjustments. In addition, infrared heating is a sustainable option that produces no harmful emissions.

Impact of Infrared Heating on the Environment 

Infrared heaters are an ideal option for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint and protect the environment. It is a highly efficient and energy-saving solution that has significant environmental benefits. It offers a sustainable alternative to traditional heating systems, reducing our dependence on fossil fuels that are known to be harmful to the environment. By choosing infrared heating, we can significantly reduce carbon emissions which are a major contributor to global warming and various health problems.
