Another very efficient heating and hot water system is the air sourced heat pump. This works by taking energy from the air, which enters a heat pump cycle and is compressed and raised to a temperature suitable for heating your home. 75% of the energy for the heat pump comes from the air with the remaining 25% coming from your electricity supply.
It doesn’t have to be warm outside for the heat pump to operate and the heat pump can extract energy from the air even at temperatures below zero.
