New research finds heat pumps now less expensive to run than gas boilers

For the first time, efficient heat pumps in the UK are cheaper to run than gas boilers according to new analysis from RAP - The Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) - an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental organisation dedicated to accelerating the transition to a clean, reliable, and efficient energy future.

This is mainly down to gas prices increasing more than electricity pricing.

The detailed analysis shows that with a coefficient of performance (COP) of 3, a heat pump starts to become cheaper to run than a gas boiler. In the past, a COP of around 3.7 was required to achieve the same running costs as a gas boiler.
