  • In short, yes, most of the time. Many governments encourage their citizens to switch to more sustainable heating systems, so don’t hesitate to check your local grants. Investing in a heat pump doesn’t have to represent a financial burden, for example:

    ─ In France, when replacing old oil, gas, or coal boiler with an air-to-water or water-to-water heat pump, a premium of at least €4,000 (€4,000 minimum for modest households and €2,500 minimum for other households) is offered. The Coup de pouce Chauffage can be combined with MaPrimeRénov and the éco PTZ zero-rate loan for additional benefits, and you can check the details from the links below.


  • ─ In Germany, new regulations include rebates of up to 40% for heat pump purchase and installation. The eligibility depends on various conditions, please check the details from the link below.


  • ─ In the UK, up to 5,000 GBP are offered through its Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS).

  • Q. How do I find and choose an installer?

    Ensure the quality of your installation by wisely choosing your installer.
    Verifying that your installer has the right qualifications for heat pump installation is essential, as it ensures the quality and reliability of the service provided and will optimize your heat pump’s operation and longevity. Don’t forget to look up your local certified installers.

  • Q. Can a heat pump be combined with an existing heating system?

    Replace or combine with your existing heating system.
    While a heat pump can replace your existing system entirely, there are some cases in which the combination of the two can turn out to be more advantageous. For instance, you can utilize the existing piping, radiator or water tank to save on the total installation cost or keep the existing gas boiler as a backup for your new heat pump.

  • Q. Heat pumps and regulations: what should I know?

    Check with your installer about local regulations
    Before anything, getting acquainted with your local permissions on home improvement is a must. If heat pumps are a “permitted development” in your region, such as parts of the UK, you aren’t required to request formal permission before installation as long as it meets some basic criteria. Be sure to check with an installer for regulations in your area.

  • Q. How long will the installation take?

    The expected duration for heat pump installation
    Regarding the installation time, you can count between 1 to 5 days depending on variables such as the type of heat pump and the number of units. You should also plan to install a heat pump when the weather is still warm as to avoid being stuck in the cold.

  • Q. How do you maintain a heat pump?

    Check the warranty and if smart management tools are available
    Check that your heat pump has a satisfactory warranty for components and maintenance services. For LG Therma V, installers can provide convenient and quick services by constantly monitoring the status of the heat pump via a remote cloud-based system. The LG BECON Cloud control solution allows them to do just that.
