To find this out, you will need to have your home assessed but a Fayetteville Professional prior to your design.  Heat Pumps will only work well in houses where the insulation levels and air changes are brought up to modern, new building standards. Condensing oil and gas boilers are very efficient options to heat houses with and your plumbers will know which will work best for your home as well as the plan for your renovation

#2 Do I Have To Use Underfloor Heating With A Heat Pump

You can use both radiators or underfloor heating with heat pumps.  The radiators will need to be sized properly because heat pumps work with a lower temperature than oil or gas boilers. It may not be possible to install under floor heating in older homes so it is important to ask your plumber if the house of your dreams is going to have this feature.

#3 Can I Control My Heating System Remotely From My Phone Or Tablet?
