A new heat pump that provides the same high temperature as gas boilers could help to make it easier and cheaper for homeowners to switch to low-carbon heating, according to its developers. 

Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps have been championed by the UK government in the drive towards net zero, with ministers pushing to ensure 600,000 heat pumps are installed in homes by 2028.
