Now is the best time to replace your heating system.
Modern heating technology makes an important contribution to climate protection. Outdated heating systems increasingly pollute the environment whereas new heating systems are now highly efficient.
There is an awareness that we should be thinking about switching to electric cars… but, what most people do not realise, is that heating and hot water for UK buildings make up 40% of our energy consumption and one fifth of our greenhouse gas emissions. Plus, the Committee on Climate Change show that heating and generating hot water for our homes will be the biggest contributor to carbon emissions for households by 2030.*
However, modern heating can be future-proof. It has become particularly clear over the last few months how important a comfortable home is, and a functioning heating system with a reliable hot water supply plays a major role in this.
Government incentives are also now available for switching to some heating systems and these grants do not need to be repaid.

More Information: Heat pumps
Heat Pumps are particularly climate-friendly because they get around 2/3 of their energy from the environment. This is the most climate-friendly way of heating. This is also the reason why heat pumps receive government funding.
Heat pumps are future-proof because the environmental heat will always be available. Plus, heat pumps are not only suitable for new buildings, but are also ideal for renovations - like our new aroTHERM plus.
See more reasons on why you should choose a heat pump:
A heat pump can bring lower heating costs than gas and oil-fired heating systems, saving you money over the lifetime of the system.
The entire system can be conveniently controlled with an app. This means that the system can also be integrated into a smart home system when installed with a VR 920 gateway.
Vaillant heat pumps are among the quietest on the market. The Sound Safe system ensures that you or your neighbours are not disturbed by noise.
Ideal for new builds and modernisation projects
Heat pumps are not just for brand new homes, you can retrofit them into existing properties.
Government cash back
All Vaillant heat pumps are eligible for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) when installed by an MCS registered engineer. The RHI scheme could give you quarterly payments for seven years if you install, or have already installed, renewable technology to heat your home.
A heat pump can lower your CO₂ emissions compared to gas and oil-fired heating systems, reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
