    Nice Aprils fool joke..
    But Get this... As per January 1st of 2024 (This year) the German Goverment does not allow any fosil fuel boiler installs/Replacements on residental homes anymore !
    Only heat pumps or Alternative energy such as Solar.
    Now what do you think about that ?

    Well I'd say its nice most here don't live in Germany, but that is also an April fools joke apparently "Under the revised rules, heating in areas of newly constructed buildings must run on 65 percent renewable energy – that rule will be phased in at the earliest from 2026 from new construction outside such areas. " replacements with fossil fuel systems still being possible as well
    https://www.gtai.de/en/invest/industries/energy/german-parliament-reforms-heating-law-to-favor-renewables-1035412#:~:text=Under the revised rules, heating,new construction outside such areas.

    Germany is pushing heavily towards heat pumps though. Viessmann who we know as a German boiler brand manufacturers and sells far more heat pumps than they do boilers.
