The media is full of talk about the end of natural gas boilers. To meet the UK target of carbon net-zero heating by 2050, we are all being led to believe that Air Source heat pumps are the way to go.
My view on this is, that it will not work. Quite apart from the fact that these units take up a large amount of space, they are prohibitively expensive to buy and have fitted. They were designed to go into new build properties, that are insulated to the nth degree, and often have underfloor heating that is run at a much lower temperature.
