Replacing a fossil-fuelled boiler or direct electric heating system with a heat pump is a considered purchase.
Some key points to think about are:
- Have I reduced the heat escaping my home as much as reasonably possible?
- Has the cavity wall been filled (if applicable)?
- Has loft insulation been completed to a high standard?
- Are my windows double or triple glazed?

It is important that your installer thoroughly assesses the heating and hot water requirements of the property to select the correct size of heat pump and heating system, and get the best performance. They will need to complete a survey and heat loss calculation of the building to do this.
