Oh, let's not forget to say goodbye to electric night storage heaters too!
These clever units take free energy from the air and with the help of a small amount of electricity, provide extremely efficient heating and hot water.
Heat pumps operate at a lower flow temperature compared to traditional heating systems, giving out gentle heat over long periods of time - this results in all parts of the property having a chance to heat thoroughly.
Heat pumps learn from external weather conditions and your own usage patterns to deliver optimum comfort. You are also able to control your system using your smartphone from anywhere with an internet connection.

Reduce your CO2 emissions by up to 50% compared with an oil boiler
Home heating, like cars, is becoming electrified. Heat pumps are a primary solution to achieve this.

Rather than burning fossil fuels, heat pumps absorb renewable solar energy from either the air, ground or water. A small amount of electricity is used to compress this heat into a useful higher temperature and pumped round the system to either your hot water cylinder or heat emitters.
A heat loss calculation will be carried out at your property to determine the required radiator sizes for the lower flow temperatures at which heat pumps operate. It is likely that these will need to be increased in size, however we do find that many have traditionally been oversized already and may well be up to the job.
Yes, we find in most cases that a new hot water cylinder is required to ensure efficient heat transfer within the cylinder.
They can seem pretty pricey in comparison to gas systems but grants should be available to help with initial upfront costs. They are also expected to last longer than gas boilers due to their sealed low maintenance nature.
As a guide a typical 3 bedroom house would be in the region of £8,000 - £10,000. This would include new radiators and hot water cylinder too.
