Abstract or summary
The Energy Saving Trust monitored 83 heat pumps in residential properties across Great Britain from April 2009 to April 2010. Findings from Phase I of this project were published in a report entitled Getting warmer: a field trial of heat pumps on the Energy Saving Trust’s website in September 2010.
Analysis from the first phase of the Energy Saving Trust’s heat pump trial: April 2009 to April 2010 examines a number of these heat pump installations in more detail, paying particular attention to the factors that influence system performance. As a result of some of the analysis presented here, the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) standards for heat pump installation2 have been updated.
Aimed primarily at heat pump manufacturers, installers and training and certification bodies, this report is specialist in nature. It will also be of interest to academics, building services engineers and low-carbon heating consultants.
