Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

I have been planning to have gas central heating installed later this year, in a 1st floor, 2 bed flat that I am renting out.
It currently has separate electric heaters and water heater, which are expensive to run. There is no gas on the premises at present and the total cost for piping in gas and fitting the gas central heating will be almost £5,000.
However, I see that in the budget a Green Gas Levy is proposed, which will gradually raise the price of gas to domestic consumers, and I fear that this may erode the point of having the central heating installed.
Can anyone advise as to whether I should still go ahead with the gas central heating?
If not, any other suggestions for a better heating system would be welcomed.
