Boiler manufacturers have announced boiler costs are set to rise by as much as £120 following the government's introduction of a Clean Heat Market Mechanism.

Some of the leading UK boiler providers have announced they will increase prices as they will not be able to meet the government's high heat pump targets with the government aiming to use the scheme to help meet their target of 600,000 heat pump installations a year.
