Should a heat pump be sized to match the existing boiler?

Traditional boilers are often oversized, however this can be expensive for heat pump systems. As a result, heat pumps are designed more carefully to avoid unnecessary cost. This includes designing the system to provide a more continuous form of heating, including the use of buffer tanks to smooth out demand. Hot water cylinders are also used to store heat during the night, so that the heat pump can always operate in heating mode during the day. This all means that a lower heat output rating is required to provide the same level of comfort.

Are you considering a water source heat pump project ?

Renewables First have considerable experience and full project capability, from initial feasibility study through to system design and installation.

The first step to develop a water source heat pump project is to conduct a Free Initial Heat Pump Assessment.
