Energy Efficiency and Traditional Buildings – Heat Pumps

This guide is one of a series on small-scale renewable energy options published by English Heritage. Separate guides look at wind generation, and solar photo-voltaic panels, explaining how each system works and what you need to consider if you wish to install it on a historic building. All the guides look at small-scale generation, or ‘microgeneration’, which the government describes as ‘The production of heat and/or electricity on a small-scale from a low carbon source’.
