ABC of heat pump operation

If you are planning to install a heat pump in your home, you need to know that this is not a device that produces heat energy. Such heat sources are, for example, gas oil boilers or those that use solid fuel. In order for the installation to work flawlessly and the fuel to be used in a correct, harmless manner, it is influenced, among other things, by the calorific value of the fuel itself. We must be aware of the fact that the higher the calorific value, the less fuel we burn to heat our home.
