HHIC sees boilers bounce back

Boilers bounce back as consumers invest in home renovation...

Year-to-date gas boiler sales up a staggering 41% from 2020.

Sales of domestic gas boilers bounced back from the Covid downturn in the UK, according to new figures from the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC).

Figures released recently, show that 2021 looks set to be a record year for gas boiler sales, with year-to-date sales up a staggering 41% from 2020, with a 12-month average sales figure increasing by 14 %. Over 80% of the boilers sold are combination heat and hot water boilers, where the home has no hot water cylinder.

Commenting on the figures, the Director of HHIC Stewart Clements said,“Sales have certainly bounced back from 2020, and consumers are once again investing in home renovation as they see the light at the end of the dark Covid tunnel.

“This is great news for the UK manufacturers who make the appliances, for the whole supply-chain that gets them ready for the home and for the 130,000 gas safe registered installers who fit them. Finally, it is also good news for the consumer as they get new high-efficiency products in their homes, helping to keep bills down.”
