An air source heat pump was installed at Colin’s house. Both he and his family are very pleased with how warm their house is with the heat pump and they have noticed a definite improvement to their hot water.
Apart from having their house consistently warm, Colin highlighted the environmental benefits of their decision.
Doing the right thing for the environment was important for him as a professional in the energy sector, as well as to set a good example for his children.
“The hot water is enough for the whole family to take a shower in the morning and the water pressure is much better than before,” says Colin.
Colin is interested to take a step further in reducing their carbon footprint by possibly installing a solar PV system in the future. This would generate renewable electricity, some of which could be used to operate the heat pump.
