Cut your home heating costs in half

A heat pump is the most cost-efficient device for improving home energy efficiency. A heat pump heats the home effectively and cheaply during the winter and cools the indoor air on hot summer days.

Savings: After the initial investment, a properly installed heat pump saves several hundred euros per year, especially in houses with electric heating.

Remember this: If you live in an apartment building or terraced house, you will probably need to ask the housing company for permission to install a heat pump. In apartment buildings, a home-specific heat pump is usually purchased for cooling purposes.

Reducing your carbon footprint: A heat pump reduces your carbon footprint by 4% per year. If a million Finns did this, it would save the equivalent of around 39,000 carbon footprints.
