Heat Pumps: The Time Is Now
For heating, the answer is heat pumps.
Heat pumps are a much cleaner, more efficient alternative compared with the traditional methods of home heating like oil and gas. Sales across Europe and the US have seen dramatic growth in recent years with four million installed in the US alone last year. With the push for net zero and to attempt to achieve energy independence, it would seem like this is only the beginning.
What exactly are heat pumps?
Heat pumps are a more environmentally friendly alternative to gas boilers as a way to heat homes and buildings.
They work by extracting heat from the surrounding environment, whether that be from the ground or the air.
Luckily for the UK, the tech is well-suited to work in low temperatures, creating between three to five times as much energy as they use.
You can install an air source heat pump, which looks like an air conditioning unit, on the outside of your house.
How do they work?
An air source heat pump works like a fridge in reverse, using electricity to pull energy from the outside air before warming it up with a compressor.
The main difference between a heat pump and a traditional boiler is that these devices do not fire up quickly, and so they work particularly well when installed in well-insulated homes with underfloor heating.
