The recent warm weather has highlighted one of the lesser known benefits of installing a heat pump….that’s its potential for free cooling. We can gently remove unwanted heat from buildings using the floor heating and actually store that heat in the rock below the house using the bore hole. Many newer homes with very high insulation levels and low energy glazing can get overly warm at times. It’s nice to be able to keep a correct climate using the clever technology and even do something useful with the energy – the extra heat is recouped when the heat pump runs later.
