About Heat Pumps
Let’s start with a proven fact. Heat pumps really do work. Across Europe, by the end of 2020, around 15 million heat pumps have been installed (Source: EHPA Market Data 2021).
It’s a proven technology and adoption is growing solidly, year on year. Switching to a heat pump was a smart move. Another fact. Heat pumps are not the same as boilers. They do not operate the same way as a boiler might. It’s best not try to operate them the way you would a boiler, and you will quickly notice that they can operate quite differently.
Your heat pump could well be on throughout the day, gently maintaining the warmth in your home.
Your radiators will not be scalding to the touch. They’ll most likely be lukewarm. Again, that’s because your heat pump is gently heating your home to the temperature you have selected.
That probably sounds like your heat pump is putting more heat into the home. Which it is. So, how will I reduce my bill if its constantly heating the home? Because it isn’t a boiler. It’s a heat pump and heat pumps are, when operated correctly, much more efficient than boilers.
Because your heat pump is built for efficiency, it generates more heat from the energy it uses. That efficiency is optimised when the heat pump is allowed to do its own thing, often to be on throughout, gently warming as it goes.
So, we know that heat pumps work. We know how they work. Now you just need to let it work by remembering it’s not a boiler.
