Madness on stilts: Hydrogen boilers might need ‘four-inch holes in walls to prevent explosions’
The Daily Telegraph, 3 March 2023
Households that have hydrogen boilers installed could be forced to drill a 4×4-inch hole in their wall to mitigate risks of explosion, according to recommendations in a government-backed safety report.
Residents in a neighbourhood being considered for a trial of hydrogen for home heating have been alarmed by a report’s recommendation that rooms with boilers hobs or substantial pipework “should have non-closable vents with [an] equivalent area of 10,000 mm2”.
That is a bit drafty, but never mind – just turn up the heating!
