Octopus Energy has launched a new heat pump deal that could cost homeowners just £2,500 to buy and install – the same price as a new boiler.

The renewable energy specialist says it wants to make the eco-friendly home heating technology more affordable and comes hot on the heels of other energy giants also offering up air source heat pumps at cut prices. Recently, British Gas said it would install a heat pump for only £2,999 (around £5,000 plus the purchase price) — making putting in the technology a realistic prospect for many homeowners who were previously priced out.
