Expert Domestic Heat Pump Installers for Georgian & Victorian houses

Georgian and Victorian houses can benefit from air source heat pumps like any other aged property, although there are specific considerations. These properties often feature solid walls, high ceilings, and large, draughty windows, posing challenges for insulation and heat retention.

Some historic properties may need to be retrofitted to bring them up to modern insulation standards, including cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, and double glazing. Proper insulation reduces the heat demand, allowing heat pumps to operate more effectively and cost-efficiently.

The distribution of heat within these historic properties is another critical factor. Heat pump systems require efficient pipework to circulate heated water or refrigerant, so upgrading and insulating existing pipework may be necessary.
