The cost to replace a gas boiler with a heat pump depends on factors such as the heat pump type, the size of a property but also, importantly, the existing pipework, emitters, the position of the existing boiler and much more besides. It is a significant decision to take, but it is one that can be worthwhile. 

Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are the government’s seemingly preferred technology to heat our homes in the push towards net zero, and while the cost of installation can be significant, they can help to lower your long-term running costs.
