Retro-fitting heat pumps in domestic buildings: busting the myths
How can heat pumps deliver both low carbon and low running costs? Together with Tim Rippon from Newcastle City Council, we will dispel the myths that heat pumps need to operate at high temperatures in existing buildings.
As the role for heat decarbonisation becomes more critical to achieve challenging net zero targets, transitioning from fossil fuels to electricity offers an attractive approach. Heat pumps have already proven to be one of the most popular solutions due to their potential for immediate carbon savings.
However, heat pumps are not a “like for like” replacement for gas boilers, so best practice designs are always essential for successful deployment.
Together with Tim Rippon from our client Newcastle City Council, we will dispel the myths that heat pumps need to operate at high temperatures in existing buildings. During an interactive Q&A session we’ll explain how correct design and integration of heat pumps as replacement for gas boilers in existing non-domestic buildings has helped the Council to: 1. maximise carbon savings; 2. ensure low running costs; 3. minimise capital investment costs; 4. close performance gaps.
Tim will also explain how Hysopt “digital twins” are helping the Council to shape their long-term heat decarbonisation strategy.
