As more and more electricity is from renewables, heat pumps become ever-more climate-friendly. And uniquely they provide about 3 kW of heat from 1kW of electricity.
So they are becoming the standard heating for UK homes, with no gas heating allowed in new homes from 2025.
In an older home, replacing gas or oil heating with a heat pump should dramatically reduce its carbon emissions. The Renewable Heat Incentive subsidises most heat pumps, if they are installed and running before March 31st 2022.
Warren Pope will:
- Explain the heat pump choices to suit your home
- Discuss design issues, such as the importance of correct sizing,
and how to be comfortable with the lower water temperatures
- Point out pitfalls and answer your questions
Warren is the Retrofit Project Manager with RetrofitWorks, delivering the exciting, local Eastern New Energy Project.
He’s an ESOS Lead Assessor for buildings, processes and transport with extensive experience in the built environment, including technology consultancy for the selection of renewable technology, energy management and retrofit.
Two Open Eco Homes hosts will also briefly describe their heat pump experiences:
- Michael Goodhart has a self-designed new-build, heated with an Air Source Heat Pump
- Anne Miller has a mid-terrace retrofitted home, part-heated by an Air to Air Heat Pump
