Call for tighter regulation on domestic heat pumps

A report from the Energy Saving Trust says domestic heat pumps need to be subject to tighter regulations in order for them to deliver widespread energy saving.

The report was welcomed by David MacKay, chief scientific adviser at the Department of Energy and Climate Change:

"Heat pumps will be a crucial component of our low-carbon future, provided they perform well. It is therefore essential to conduct trials to establish best practice and perfect this technology for use in buildings throughout the UK."
