Most of us will be familiar with the boiler, heating water and sending it to the radiators around the house. But there are other ways to create that heat and to warm our houses. Here are some of the best ways to heat your property if you are looking at options.
Ground source heat pumps are a very environmentally friendly option that extracts heat from the earth and use it to heat the home or create hot water. An above ground pump connects to a series of pipes buried in the garden and can be used all year round. Air source pumps take heat from outdoors and use it indoors to create warm or cool air but tend to be less efficient if the temperature drops below -5 degrees C.
Radiators remain the most popular way to heat your home and are connected to boilers that are gas powered and send hot water around the system. This system also pairs well with underfloor heating. You can use biomass boilers in place of gas ones if you have a ready supply of wood which these burn to create the hot water and the heat.
Finally, solar panels are the ultimate eco-friendly option for heating the home. These are placed on the roof and turn sunlight into energy to then power the heating system of the home. You still need a boiler or immersion heater to work with the panels.
