  • But will the higher grant be available when Octopus start offering heat pumps in Wales?
  • Still not enough for me to make the jump.
    I would think about it if my boiler were on its last legs but it's probably got another good 15 years in it yet.

    According to Greg Jackson at the Wired Octopus Energy Tech Summit a couple of weeks ago, if your current heating system is in good working order, the Octopus heat pump should be able to just replace your current boiler because it will produce water as hot as a gas boiler. The Cosy 6 will be first out of the traps and should cope with a three bedroom property. Higher capacity ones in due course.
