We at Sweeney Renewables are aware that many consumers are still unsure of what heat pumps actually are. Heat pumps are being confused as a modern eco-friendly form of boiler that is extremely expensive however, more and more people are installing them in their homes. We have put together some information that we hope you will find useful.
What is a heat pump?
Unlike other conventional heating systems, a heat pump is a powered compressor technology similar to that of a fridge, the air source heat pump extracts heat from the air outside and uses it to heat your home through underfloor heating systems, radiators and to provide domestic hot water.
Why should I choose a heat pump?
Heat pumps can serve all the heating and water needed in a house. During the long winter months the heat pump will distribute warm air throughout your home, and in the summer the heat pump will extract the heat from the home and provide you with cooler air.
Heat pumps can be used on their own or with existing systems and will work to reduce your energy consumption, this will save you a considerable amount in heating costs annually.
