Where will the vast savings come from?
Heat pumps only work effectively in well insulated properties. Gas central heating radiators run at an average of 75 degrees centigrade which allows for a comfortable temperature with low levels of insulation. Heat pumps running at 20 degrees centigrade are rendered next to useless in a poorly insulated house. They also cost more to run than gas CH boilers.
If the government insist on blackmailing us to go green it will end with a poll tax style revolt. More so if the big polluters carry on as usual.
