Heat pumps are the most energy efficient way of producing heat. They take energy from the air, the ground or water, and condense it until it reaches a useable level which is then used to heat your home or water. Heat pumps require electricity to power the compressor so the more heat required the more energy they use. For this reason they are best used in conjunction with underfloor heating or low temperature radiators. However, for every 1kw of power used, a heat pump will produce 3-4kw of heat.
You could also claim Renewable Heat Incentive payments if you install a Heat Pump follow the link to Ofgem to find out more about the scheme.
Air source heat pumps extract and compress energy from the outside air. This is the easiest system to install as it has an additional unit mounted outside and can work at temperatures well below freezing.
