EDF Energy first to offer product for homes that cannot be insulated

EDF Energy, the UK’s largest producer of low carbon electricity, can announce that it is the only energy supplier offering a High Temperature Heat Pump. For the first time, a heat pump is available that works efficiently in homes that are difficult to insulate, unlike the Low Temperature Heat Pumps.

EDF Energy’s newly extended EcoRenew range of microgeneration and renewable heating products now includes the Daikin Altherma High Temperature Air Source Heat Pump.

Angus Wilby, Head of Energy Services at EDF Energy, said: “We are committed to helping customers reduce their energy consumption and carbon emissions. That’s why, as part of our partnership with Daikin, we’ve introduced this new product.

“The High Temperature Air Source Heat Pump offers customers with homes which are difficult to insulate and where heating system upgrades are not viable a great low carbon alternative to a fossil fuel boiler. Low Temperature Heat Pumps only perform well if a property is insulated. Furthermore, for any customer currently using heating oil or liquid petroleum gas to heat their homes this unit is a great option which could save them a significant amount of money on their annual heating bills especially if they sign up to a time of use electricity tariff or fixed price electricity tariff such as Eco20:20 or Price Protection 2014 from EDF Energy.

“All of our Air Source Heat Pump packages include five years warranty, 10 year installation guarantee and 4 annual service checks providing customers with the peace of mind that these cutting edge systems will provide them with the performance they require.”

EDF Energy has partnered with Daikin since April 2011.
