Common myths surrounding the use and suitability of heat pumps.

The three most common myths surrounding heat pump installations in older properties and the true possibilities of this low carbon technology.

Myth: every home will need higher levels of insulation

Research of UK consumers* found 13% of online discussions around heat pumps mentioned insulation as a good investment towards increased energy efficiency. However, the same research showed many felt a ‘high level’ of insulation was required, otherwise the technology wouldn’t deliver as expected.

The issue with this narrative is that it suggests that there is a ‘one size fits all’ approach to fitting a heat pump – and that all properties will need to make significant investments in building fabric to make a heat pump possible.

Taking a fabric first approach and ensuring insulation is up to standard is essential when looking to maximise efficiencies in any property, and insulation will inevitably conserve energy – whether you have a heat pump or a boiler in place.

However, a property with loft insulation, cavity wall insulation and double-glazing is usually ready to support a heat pump with limited additional improvements. Older properties that haven’t had any modern energy efficiency upgrades may require more investment in insulation before a heat pump can be fitted. However, insulation will make any heating system work more effectively and will always be a good investment, particularly now as we look to reduce our energy usage.

Myth: my home won’t be as warm with a heat pump

As we move to installing more heat pumps it’s clear that a certain amount of behavioural change will need to happen, both in the minds of the homeowner and the way they use their heating system, and how the installation is approached.

One of the biggest themes identified in research centred on consumer understanding of heat pump technology and how it works. A move towards the lower temperature system utilised by heat pumps, or energy efficient boilers, means that radiators need to be optimised to ensure they are providing sufficient heat for the room. In short, while heat is produced by the heat pump more efficiently compared to a gas boiler, there will be a lower level of heat energy transferred into the room, so a greater radiator surface area is required to emit the same amount of heat energy.

While homeowners will find radiators aren’t as hot as they were with a boiler system, it’s important installers are educating customers on how to adapt to this change of heating to get the most out of their system. In this instance, to reach the desired comfort levels a simple adjustment to heating start times may be all that’s required, and this is usually managed by the intelligent heating controls.

Myth: a heat pump will also need a back-up system

One of the biggest misconceptions highlighted in research centred on the ability for heat pumps to work efficiently in colder UK climates. This was coupled with a belief that a backup system is required for the chillier months.

In Scandinavian countries, where heat pump technology has been used successfully for many years, temperatures of -20°C can be a common occurrence. Yet, while the UK is more likely to see sustained lows of -7°C, the belief that heat pumps will underperform in winter and an auxiliary system is required to heat water and the home, is one that needs to be overcome.

A boiler is likely to be designed to cope with outdoor temperatures of -1°C to -3°C and so, if a heat pump system is designed accurately with correctly sized radiators and insulation in place, it will fulfil the same hot water and room temperature requirements as a boiler set up.
