“How do heat pumps work?
Heat pumps are powered by electricity and work by extracting heat from the air or ground outside the house and transfers it indoors at a warmer temperature. So how exactly does it do this?
A heat pump contains a fluid that quietly and efficiently harvests and absorbs the heat from the air or ground outside your home. The heat pump then compresses the fluid and raises it to a suitable temperature. The heat from the fluid is then transferred to the water in your heating system, including radiators and underfloor heating, as well as your hot water tank.”

Heat pumps have increased in popularity over the last several years. The electricity used to operate them is much smaller than the energy in heat that is yielded. While the upfront costs are pricier, your monthly utility bill will be much smaller than if it used with traditional electrical or gas heating systems.
