Retrofi t heat pumps for buildings Annex 30 of the IEA Heat Pump Programme

In the majority of European countries,
the present heat pump market
for space and water heating and
cooling is largely concentrated on
new buildings, particularly singleand
two-family houses. However,
there is a very large potential in the
retrofi t market for replacement of old
conventional oil-, gas- and coal-fi red
heating systems with high energy-effi
cient and environmentally sound
heat pumps.
