A new space-saving, high-temperature heat pump has been developed to make it faster and simpler to replace your gas boiler.

Viessmann has launched two new high temperature air source heat pumps that have a maximum flow temperature of 70°C (at an outside temperature down to -10°C) and can, in most cases, use existing radiators – without the need for new emitters to be installed – Viessmann says.
