pumps are surprising devices that can extract
heat energy from something that appears to be
cold - from the air or the ground for example
- and ‘magically’ use it for home
heating. This concept is somewhat perplexing and
goes counter to our natural sense of how things
ought to work, so it is not surprising that some
people wonder if heat pumps really do what they
claim. There is, after all, no shortage of gadgets
that fail to do what they say on the box!
In this book we want to give you the whole
picture, warts and all. Like any other technology,
heat pumps can perform poorly if badly installed
or used for the wrong purposes and we cannot
expect them always to match the exaggerated
promises of salesmen.
But the basics are straightforward. The science
is completely sound. The engineering principles
are well established. And we know from hands-on
experience that heat pumps will deliver low
heating bills if they are installed properly.
This book aims to demystify a subject clouded
in hype and misunderstanding.
The book starts at first principles, so prior
knowledge is not needed, but is also aimed at
anyone who wants to improve their understanding
of modern heat pumps, such as householders,
planners, plumbers, students or architects.
It is also devoid of sales hype and spin, so
offers a balanced view. Armed with the content
of this book, the informed homeowner or designer
should be able to judge whether a heat pump
installation might be appropriate in a given
situation (or not), and how its performance
might be optimised.
Why buy this book?
Given that heating is expensive, and probably
a considerable 'chunk' of one's income, the
cost of this book is tiny by comparison. It
could help you to avoid installing an inappropriate
system - potentially a very expensive mistake.
It might help you get a good system running
