Energy supplier EDF has unveiled two new projects designed to accelerate the uptake of heat pumps, as well as making them more affordable and easier to install. 

Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps can be prohibitively expensive for some homeowners to install, and these new government-funded projects are designed to make switching to heat pumps more attractive.
