Typo in heat pump example

The article states "... a heat pump that uses 1.6kW but only outputs 5kW is less energy efficient than a model that uses 1.8kW and outputs 5kW." I suspect that one of the 5kW output values is incorrect - perhaps the first one should be 3kW rather than 5kW.

Hi B & G,

Thanks for pointing that out, the figures were swapped and have now been corrected.

Kind regards,
