Air source heat pumps for retrofit in existing buildings

Energy conservation in existing domestic buildings with existing technology and systems is possible
by the application of air source heat pumps as add-ons to existing installations, optimising the performance
of condensing heating boilers. This is a reliable technology which can be linked to an existing energy
infrastructure, whether it is in the Netherlands, France or Germany. If we are to meet the exacting
targets for reduction of CO2 and the use of renewable energy, much must be done in this market segment.
However, this is possible and realistic with existing technology and knowledge!
