Specifying hybrid heat pump systems in the transition to low carbon energy

While the installation of heat pumps will play a large part in helping the Government achieve its net zero target – air source heat pumps (ASHPs) can fit almost anywhere: retrofit or new build, domestic or industrial and commercial, mixed-use developments – but what about the opportunity in buildings that are not ready to rely completely on low carbon heating systems?

How to Maximise Energy Efficiency from Heat Pump Systems

The energy efficiency of air source heat pumps is not in doubt; they are up to three times as efficient as a gas boiler. But to maximise the energy efficiency of a commercial heat pump solution, there are four key aspects that need careful consideration: building fabric, building services, heat pump system design, and usage.
