As heat pumps for flats make use of renewable energy, that allows tenants to save as much as 30 to 50% from their heating bills compared to when using night storage heaters.
The impact of providing affordable heating to residential flats will be immense and will put an end to fuel poverty, greatly improve the general well-being of tenants, and minimize the number of winter deaths as a result of no heating.
Besides the cost-saving advantages, heat pumps for flats can last for over 20 years while requiring minimal servicing and maintenance.
As housing organizations can’t typically fund the design of ground arrays (the most expensive part of a ground source heating pump), they can use an ownership model and generate the interest of external investors to help fund the ground arrays.
As soon as the heating pumps for flats are installed, and a connection is made with the infrastructure, they’ll get a ‘standing charge.’
