What is a Heat Pump?
Air Source and Ground Source heat pumps can be a really effective, efficient and environmentally sound way to heat your home. In really simple terms, heat pumps transfer low grade heat (in this case from the air or from the ground) into high temperature heat for use in your home. They only use a small amount of energy to do this and for every 1kW of electricity that is used by the heat pump, it can create between 3 and 4kW of energy for your heating system.
Why would you want a heat pump?
Low Running Costs
A well designed, installed and maintained heat pump system can be up to 400% efficient. Less energy consumption = lower running costs. Heat pumps can be cheaper than many other heating systems to run. Please get in touch and we will help you work out what you could save.
We all know we are in a climate emergency, this is an opportunity to do something about it. Using less energy = less greenhouse gases = happier planet.
This table shows the amount of CO2 that can be saved by switching to a heat pump.

Switching to an energy supplier that only utilities energy from renewable sources only helps this matter further.
