Is It Possible to Install Heat Pumps in Older Properties?

This is a regular question that we mostly get asked by households and businesses across the Southwest. Most people believe that heat pumps work only in new builds. However, the number of heat pumps installed every year is expected to increase by the end of the decade.

In the UK, most people believe that heat pumps only work efficiently in modern buildings, but this is not true.

Heat pumps can work in older properties. However, there are some considerations to keep in mind. Older properties may have different insulation levels and construction materials compared to newer buildings, so it's important to assess the property to determine if it's suitable for a heat pump.

Additionally, older properties may require upgrades to the electrical system to support a heat pump. Consulting with a qualified HVAC professional can help determine the best heating and cooling solution for an older property.

Flats and terraced houses with little outdoor spaces will need to consider wall-mounted or rooftop options.
