This dataset provides Census 2021 estimates that classify occupied household spaces in England and Wales by the type of central heating present. The estimates are as at Census Day, 21 March 2021.


Central heating is a heating system used to heat multiple rooms in a building by circulating air or heated water through pipes to radiators or vents. Single or multiple fuel sources can fuel these systems.

Central heating systems that are unused or not working are still considered. No information is available for household spaces with no usual residents.
