A heat pump is a device used for heating the home by transferring heat from a source into the home, such as transferring heat from the soil in the garden into the house.

Though boilers also function to heat the house, heat pumps are more energy-efficient, in that they consume less energy. 

The average heat pump has 200-600% efficiency rate, as the energy consumed is pretty lower for the heat produced. 

Heat pumps are an integral tool in making the UK’s 2050 Zero-target a reality. 

They’re gradually replacing fossil fuels and have several advantages: cutting back utility bills and earning homeowners more money through government’s incentives like the Renewable Heat Incentive.

Different factors should be considered before the purchase of a heat pump. 

These include the home’s location and the specific purpose for installing the heating system, such as if it’s to provide heating to the house or heat domestic hot water. 

Other factors that determine the type of heat pump for a home include the budget and the available suppliers.

The UK government targets having 19 million heat pumps installed by 2050. 

This is part of its effort to reduce UK’s carbon emissions, meaning that heat pumps are valuable assets in the UK.
