Benefits of Using a Heat Pump

Heat pumps provide countless advantages for your home. Pumping the heat uses less electricity compared to when electricity is solely used as a method for converting it. Through the summer the cycle can often be used as an air conditioner. So, with this in mind, here we run through some of the main benefits. 

Lower Running Costs

Heat pumps are more cost-effective to run than systems based on combustion. The more energy-efficient the systems are the more significant long term savings are in terms of energy, this investment can help you save up to £1,400 per year. 

Less Maintenance

Heat pumps need a lot less maintenance than combustion heating systems. Often and in most cases, this is once a year, some certain details of the system have to be checked. 

Increased Safety

Heat pumps are safer than combustion-based heating systems. They are safe to operate and since they rely on electricity and do not need to burn fuel to generate heat, they come with fewer safety concerns compared to their counterparts.


The life span of heat pumps is pretty substantial, it can be up to 50 years in some cases! For some, this may fall between 14 to 15 years. Despite these figures, they are exceptionally reliable and steady sources of heat and are ever-increasing in popularity. 

Lowers Carbon Emissions

Heat pump systems lower your carbon emissions and it has an efficient conversion rate of energy to heat. An example being, water source heat pumps reach reasonably high efficiencies, near 600 per cent.

To improve the air quality within your home or business building, the heat pumps use Nano Platinum filters to collect and remove dust from the air. You can even set your preferred temperature with just the push of a button with the I-Save mode models.
