Heat Pump Reality Check: Setting the Record Straight on Common Misconceptions
Heat pumps are becoming an increasingly popular choice for heating and cooling homes, businesses, and institutions. These systems transfer heat from the outside air, ground, or water into the building, providing reliable and cost-effective heating and cooling throughout the year.
Optimising Heat Pump Performance: Key Considerations for Efficient Heating and Cooling
As professionals in the renewable heating industry, staying up-to-date on the latest technologies and techniques for maximising energy efficiency and performance is essential. Heat pumps are an increasingly popular choice for residential and commercial heating and cooling, offering numerous benefits, including reduced energy costs and lower environmental impact. But how can we ensure that heat pumps are operating at peak performance? Here are some key considerations to keep in mind.
Old Buildings Vs Heat Pumps
The general mood towards the debate as to whether heat pumps are suitable for older properties isn’t an optimistic one. Immediate pessimism isn’t an attitude we’d like to see, especially while we’re working towards the UK catching up in the epic heat pump race (that we’re losing). If you weren’t aware, Europe is doing well in installing heat pumps on a mass level and is replacing plenty of gas boilers. However, the UK has the fewest installations and is at the bottom of the league.
