why is hydrogen not used as a domestic fuel even though it has the highest calorific value ?

Hydrogen is not used as a domestic fuel even though it has the highest calorific value due to the following points -

  • It is'nt cheap and easily available
  • It is not easy to store
  • It is highly explosive
  • It does not burn at a slow rate with controlled combustion
  • It is not safe to handle

Due to these points hydrogen is not used as a domestic fuel.

Hope it helped u !
