Will a heat pump be able to heat my whole house?


One of the most common questions we get asked is if a heat pump will be able to heat your whole house, particularly if you have a large house. The answer is yes - it will, as there are different sizes of heat pumps available depending on the size of your house. 

However, there are certain features about your property that need to be taken into consideration. 

  • Insulation, property fabric, and heat loss (take a look our blog on the importance of insulation here)
  • The size of the radiators and/or underfloor heating 
  • The desired temperature
  • Seasonal temperature fluctuations

We also need to know the amount of rooms you have in the property, their sizes and their use, as some rooms need to be heated more than others. The number and type of rooms helps us determine the overall heat demand of the house and the size of the heat pump that you’ll need. 

It’s imperative that we choose the correct sized heat pump for your home. The last thing you want is to have a smaller sized heat pump installed, for it to struggle to keep up with the demand of the heating, therefore be less energy efficient and will work over-time. If you install a heat pump that’s too big, it would cost more, be more energy consuming and efficiency would also be reduced.

That’s why we take the time and care to ensure that the system we install is the perfect size for your home and energy use, giving you the best value for money.

If you’re not sure if a heat pump would be the best solution for your home, or you worry that it won’t be as efficient as you think, then take a look at this case study here. This particular client renovated their home, and even with the property becoming much bigger, their bills are now a ⅓ of what they were!
