What they don't tell you about Heating Air Pumps!


Recommended Posts

Most people have heard about these Heating Air Pumps which the Government is pushing, installing one can cost anywhere between £7-15 K. People seem to get them confused with air conditioning as they look similar. The downsides can be they can be noisy, bad for bird life in your garden because freezing cold air is ejected into your garden, if not installed correctly they can be inefficient such as struggling to get to 20 degree C. people with small houses and flats will not have room to fit the electrical gubbings that goes in the house!

Anyway what the Government and those who are pushing haven't told people is the units need replacing after 10 years! That's right you will need to pay out again for a new unit! So you may save a few quid on the running costs but you have to factor end of life and replacement in as well!

Why? There are ac units from the 60's still running in the NAMER and APAC regions.
