In recent years, heat pumps have emerged as a promising new form of technology with a relatively low environmental impact.
Moreover, they have presented householders with an opportunity to reduce their heating bills.

Armed with the practical information contained in these pages, homeowners will have the necessary knowledge to take advantage of this potentially low-carbon technology to heat their properties.
