Heat pumps are a low-carbon, convenient alternative to a traditional oil boiler or solid fuel heating system.
Heat pumps extract heat from the outside air or the ground around your home - just like a fridge removes heat from inside itself. This heat is concentrated to a higher temperature by the heat pump and then delivered to your heating system - including your hot water tank, radiators or under-floor heating.
Heat pumps are available in a range of heating capacities, to suit the needs of your home. They do use some electricity to produce the heat and as a result your electricity bill may increase. The benefit will be seen as you reduce the cost of your main heating fuel.
