The PBT approach to Heat Pumps

Viewed as a new technology in the UK, heat pumps have actually been an established and accepted heating system on the colder continent for over 30 years. Working like a fridge in reverse, they extract heat from their surroundings. The warmth is pumped into the property and can be used by the building’s heating and hot water systems.

There are any number of companies offering the installations of cheaper heat pumps. Although we support the growing permeation of boiler alternatives into the wider market, we do not believe that these technologies necessarily bring the promised efficiencies. At PBT Installations, we favour engineering from the continent where heat pumps have been widely used for over thirty years. The technologies we use have been purpose designed and offer first class efficiency even at temperatures significantly sub-zero.

Our installations save you money and reduce your carbon emissions.

Why switch to a heat pump?

  • By transferring heat rather than generating it, heat pumps provide a far more efficient way of heating a space and providing hot water, than gas, oil or electric heaters.
  • Energy efficiencies save you significant money and lower your carbon emissions
  • Heat pumps can be used in conjunction with solar panels to further reduce your annual household bills
  • Government grants are available on many installations which can enable you to recoup some of the installation costs
  • You can expect a much longer lifespan for your heat pump than the average gas boiler
  • With no combustion involved, a heat pump is much safer than other heating systems
  • Heat pumps are compatible with radiators and underfloor heating and provide your hot water too
  • A good quality heat pump, when correctly installed, is very quiet operationally. In the vast majority of cases, they operate more quietly than fossil fuel burners.
  • A heat pump will give you steady, consistent comfort, reacting to external conditions to provide your desired living temperature.
  • If required, heat pumps can cool a space too, providing comfort in Summer as well as Winter.
