Is it really a two year payback as claimed in the farmers guardian, 23/11/18? Surely too good to be true. Welcome feedback on this.

I will soon be cried down, but my take is, if it seems too good itis too good..
In fact I would say it is not worth touching with a barge pole!

Fake news. Installs with about 5 rad standard upgrade can be in the region of £13,000.
The maximum you can receive from RHI is £10,000

Air Source heat pumps sized and installed correctly are one of the cheapest heating systems on the market. New ultra quiet Mitsubishi ashp have an efficiency of 3.65/1. So if you pay £0.16 for an electric unit the heat is £0.043p.

LPG average is 8p
Mains connected gas 4.2p
Oil (volitile market) 5.7p/7.6p
Biomass pellets 4.6p
Coal 3p

We have lots of enquires regarding ashp and gshp, hotly sought after home upgrades.

So 4.3p

If you have your own solar then surely it’s happy days
 
Beware quotes from installers without knowing the temperature at which the efficiency ratio was quoted.
In mild winter weather they are ok but as the temp drops so does the efficiency. In cold weather you can be down to 2:1 or less so it's not so cheap. Need to work out on average figures for monthly temp to get true costs.
I was seriously looking at it for a new build until I talked to a few plumbers who all said it's great but make sure you have oil back up!!!!?
