In this post I'm going to share why a heat pump is worth investing in, but most importantly what one actually is.

What is a heat pump

If you are unaware of what a heat pump is it is a piece of equipment that is used to create renewable energy by capturing heat from outside and moving it into your home. Even when the outside air feels chilly, air source heat pumps extract heat energy from the atmosphere, channelling it into your home for warmth. These systems are designed to generate three to four times more heat energy than they consume during the extraction process.

Moving on - here are some of the top reasons why it's worth investing in one.

Year round comfort

A heating pump doesn't just bring warmth to the home, it also has the ability to cool the home in summer months so you don't need a separate air conditioning system.

Energy efficiency 

Having a heat pump transfers heat rather than generating it. This means that they are a lot more energy efficient than traditional systems. 

Long term savings

Although an expensive upfront cost for installation, because they are more energy efficient heat pumps in return mean lower energy bills so therefore are good for your bank account. Over time heat pumps will pay for themselves.

Reduced carbon footprint 

Lots of us are trying to reduce our carbon footprint and be more eco-friendly these days. Heat pumps produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional systems.

Low maintenance

Heat pumps are low maintenance as you only need to do routine maintenance and change filters to keep them running efficiently.

Improve indoor air quality

As they provide continuous air circulation and filtration this means heat pumps offer better air quality which is great for those who have allergies or respiratory conditions. 


Last of all, heat pumps are actually quiet so they ensure a peaceful home environment.
