What is the difference between a boiler and a heat pump?

Both boilers and heat pumps are both used as heating equipment to be used in residential or commercial environments to maintain the warmth.

Boilers

Boilers are a sealed devices where water is heated to a temperature that has been predetermined. This is then used to generate more heat, provide hot water, and keep the home or business at the right temperature. They are an efficient solution to the heating issues in the home, and they are suitable as a heating option. There are a range of boiler types that can be considered out there, from condensing boilers to combi boilers, electric boilers to gas or oil boilers. If you need boiler repair, there are engineers trained to ensure that your boiler is working correctly.

Heat Pumps

When you choose a heat pump, you are choosing a more complicated device than a boiler. The goal behind the heat pump is the same; it generates heat, and it absorbs and generates a certain amount of thermal energy from the environment to a heating element with a higher temperature. Most heat pumps use liquid refrigerant as the coolant option, and this absorbs air or underground heat which is then passed through the compressor.


The preferred option for most homes and business premises is a boiler. With the help of the right boiler servicing, you can keep yours up to date without worrying it’ll break down on you at the wrong time.
