pumps warm the air gen­tly, so they’re not ideal if your home heats up and cools down quickly. For this rea­son, they work most ef­fi­ciently in homes with good in­su­la­tion, which a lot of pe­riod prop­er­ties lack. While you should cut your home’s CO2 emis­sions by fit­ting a heat pump, how much will de­pend on the type of heat­ing you’re re­plac­ing. Heat pumps need electricity to work, so the most en­vi­ron­men­tal­lyfriendly op­tion is to gen­er­ate your own electricity using so­lar pan­els or a wind tur­bine, for ex­am­ple, but these are ex­pen­sive to in­stall.
