The world as a collective is evermore pushing itself towards a carbon neutral future, with many industry leaders using various avenues to reduce their emissions to create a ‘greener’ planet for all. However, those improvements are not all that is needed, and now scientists are looking at what can be done by the general public to reduce emissions from homes in Europe to zero.
The latest industry analysis has shown that in 2018 the heat pump market grew by over 20% in units delivered compared to 2017. This growth is excellent news for the heat pump industry, as well as the environment, as heat pumps make significant carbon savings compared to traditional fossil fuel alternatives. It is also a sign of the times, as more customers are switching away from fossil fuel boilers and installing energy efficient heat pumps in their homes.
Heat pumps are becoming an increasingly popular choice for rural housebuilders, however many developers have still never used heat pumps on their developments. With oil prices rising, and heat pumps becoming more desirable for homebuyers, we think now is a good time to scrap traditional oil and LPG boilers and make the switch to heat pumps.
