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.
Why Would You Choose Heat Pumps?
Heat pumps are a progressive technology, offering a reliable source of heating and hot water. Heat pumps use electricity to run, and are a total replacement for your traditional boiler system, offering the homeowner significant reductions in their running costs, as well as huge carbon savings for the developer. Heat pump technology is therefore far more marketable than traditional fossil fuels – government figures suggest a 14% boost in property price is possible by introducing energy saving measures – and save the developer from the costly alternative of bringing a gas supply to site.
