The climate around us is ever changing but over the last few decades the rate of change has accelerated and if action isn’t taken now the future generations will pay the price our selfish ways. The latest natural history documentary with Sir David Attenborough is a sobering reminder of what may lay ahead if action is taken now and a good place to start is how we all heat our homes. It really is the right time to switch to electric heating (where possible) as with future expansion of renewable energy and government rebaits the incentives are there in the UK.
There is a lot or electrical heating on the market but today we are going to focus on the Heat pump which should be the only choice for a new build well insulated home and in fact as of 2025 no gas installs means this might be the only viable option.
The unit works by transferring heat from the air which is used to heat a water loop feeding hot water tanks and space heating and when used with underfloor wet systems can be very, very efficient. There is always concern that what is this fails and my answer is always the same “what if your boiler fails”? these used to be very limited to specialist installers however now these are available in all major plumbing outlets and there are 100’s of experienced installers for any breakdown or service needs.
