Yes, heat pumps work well with radiators, providing a relatively low flow temperature is used.
In many cases, existing radiators are large enough to allow a lower flow temperature, particularly if improvements are being made to the energy efficiency of the building. Many traditional heating systems are operated at a high flow temperature, but turn on and off regularly. A heat pump operating at a lower temperature but more continuously can be just as effective.
Alternatively, low-temperature radiators can be installed such as the Jaga Strada or Dimplex SmartRad. These can provide around 3 times as much heat output than a standard radiator of the same size, which allows a low flow temperature to be used. These radiators are fan-assisted, so a power supply is required.
Are you considering a water source heat pump project ?
The first step to develop a water source heat pump project is to conduct a Free Initial Heat Pump Assessment.
