heat pumps are most effective when used in well insulated and draught proofed buildings
There are certain things to bear in mind before installing a heat pump:
If you live in an old building with lots of draughts, a heat pump will have to work hard to keep warming your property. In this case, look at insulating your home at the same time as installing a heat pump to make the greatest environmental and financial savings.
Do you have an outside area to place the heat pump? The heat pump needs to be positioned outside in order to extract the heat from the air. If you live in a block of flats, you might struggle to find a suitable spot for the heat pump.
Although they are not noisy, heat pumps make a whirring sound, a bit like an air-conditioner. You may find that you do not wish to install something that is not completely silent.
greentomatoenergy will assess your property’s suitability for a heat pump before making an installation and will advise on ways to make it more efficient or will suggest a more appropriate solution to your heating needs.
