Homeowners in Scotland can now apply for £7,500 towards the cost of a new heat pump under a new Scottish government scheme. 

Air source heat pumps (ASHP) and ground source heat pumps (GSHP) are low-carbon heating systems that can help households lower their energy bills in the long run. However for some their costs can be prohibitively expensive.
