Meet our heat pump heroes
Heat pumps have been in the news a lot recently, but how much do you know about them?
Heat pumps – usually air source or ground source – are modern, low carbon heating systems that are much more energy efficient than boilers and traditional electric heating. This means that heat pumps will play a crucial role in meeting net zero carbon targets and addressing the climate emergency.
The Scottish Government’s Heat in Buildings Strategy, published in October 2021, wants one million homeowners to have switched to zero emissions heating by 2030. This is an ambitious target but it’s an important one if we’re to meet Scotland’s net zero targets – and we’re on hand to help.
