Stephen feels glad that they have done something positive for the environment and is very excited to tell people about their new heat pump. But the greatest benefit for him is that living with a heat pump will be the norm for his young daughter, Layla.
“It is an unplanned benefit that Layla points to the outdoor unit when I talk to her about the heat pump. It gives me a nice and warm feeling,” said Stephen.
Prior to the installation, Stephen and Dina had their gas boiler in the garage and the hot water tank inside a cupboard on the first floor of the house. Now, they have their new air source heat pump in their garden and a new hot water tank in the garage, where the gas boiler was previously located.
The couple also believe that having a renewable heating technology installed in their house will increase the value of the property when they would like to sell it.
“I wanted to participate in the Electrification of Heat Demonstration Project to prove that heat pumps work,” Stephen added.
