Switching to a very efficient heat pump could save some homeowners around £260 on their yearly energy bills, new research suggests.

Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are set to become popular alternatives to natural gas boilers, and the government is aiming to roll out 600,000 heat pumps per year into homes by 2028.
