Heatpump versus logfire


My heatpump has now been repaired after waiting six weeks for the shipping of a small part.

The sellers of the pump are a prominent Christchur­ch firm, and the pump a leading brand. The makers have agreed to fix it under warranty.

I am 79 years old and, had I possessed no other form of heating, I would have been in trouble. Fortunatel­y, I also have a logfire.

How can we justify installing heatpumps if a breakdown makes them inoperable for half a winter?

My advice to anybody whose logfire is approachin­g its 15-year replacemen­t date is get another one installed. Do not replace it with a heatpump.
