Heat Pumps vs Boilers - The Basics

When it comes to heating your home or office, there are two popular heating systems: boilers & heat pumps. Both have the same outcome, they keep you warm, so what’s the difference?

If the system is designed correctly, Heat pumps are the most eco-friendly option; they use electricity to extract heat from the air or ground outside and bring it indoors to heat your space.

Boilers, on the other hand, rely on burning fossil fuels to heat water and circulate it around the building. Although they have been a reliable heating option for decades, they are less environmentally friendly than heat pumps.

So which is the better option? It depends on your specific needs and priorities. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly and versatile heating and cooling solution, a heat pump may be the way to go. But a boiler might be better if you require a reliable and robust heat source for older, less insulated buildings.

No matter which option you choose, Warm and Cool London can guide you on the best system for your space. Our expert staff will help you make the right choice for your heating needs so you experience a warm, comfortable space all year round.

Upgrading your heating system

Before confirming that a heat pump will heat your property throughout the heating season, we must calculate that the current system can warm the house at low temperatures. It will require upgrading if the current radiator system or underfloor heating system cannot maintain the properties’ comfort during colder winter months.

Londoners Frequently Ask These Heat Pump Questions

Heat pumps come in various types, but they all operate using the same four-step process known as the refrigeration cycle.

This process involves transferring heat from the outside environment into a building using four stages: evaporation, compression, condensation, and expansion.

The heat pump absorbs heat from the air or ground outside, compresses it, and then transfers it indoors to heat the space.

There are three main types of heat pumps: air-source, ground-source, and water-source.
Air-source heat pumps extract heat from the air outside and distribute it indoors through ducts or air handlers.
Ground-source heat pumps use pipes buried in the ground to extract heat from the earth and distribute it indoors.
Water-source heat pumps extract heat from a water source such as a lake or well and distribute it indoors.

Air source heat pumps are the most popular type of heat pumps. One of the main reasons for their popularity is their flexibility when it comes to installation location. They are often the easiest and quickest to install, and the outdoor units can be placed on the ground, a structurally stable balcony, or mounted on an exterior wall. 

We recommend to employ a qualified and MCS-certified heat pump installer, to assess your property and provide recommendations on any necessary home upgrades to ensure that your new heating system operates at maximum efficiency and performance for your home.
