What are heat pumps and what are the benefits?

Heat pumps provide an alternative to traditional ways of heating and hot water generation.

The benefits of heat pumps

  • Proven technology, widely used in Europe for decades
  • Installed appropriately they offer lower running costs and carbon emissions than other systems
  • Heat pumps integrate easily with existing systems such as solar energy and electric battery storage
  • Very low maintenance – for example the need for regular flue checks in gas and oil boilers is removed
  • No fuel tank or flue required
  • Unlike boilers heat pumps are capable of cooling as well as heating, making it possible to control the climate of your home year-round if you select a model with a cooling option
