Modernising with a heat pump
You can plan the installation of a heat pump heating system in new buildings from the very start, but modernising your heating system with a heat pump is also highly recommended for old buildings. Vaillant offers solutions that enable heat pumps to work with underfloor heating as well as radiators. This is because underfloor heating is a panel heating system, which means that due to the larger radiator surface, you need a lower flow temperature when the system is in operation. As a result, the heat pump has to work less and is therefore more efficient.
Replacing oil heating systems is particularly worthwhile, because there is no longer any smell of oil, you gain an entire boiler room and you save money on operating costs.
Overall, modernisation involving a heat pump entails extensive work for you, especially if you have decided on a ground-source or a water-source heat pump. However, you shouldn't forget that you will have significantly lower operating costs from now on and are no longer dependent on fossil energy. In addition, by using a heat pump heating system, you are heating in an environmentally friendly manner and conserving natural resources.
