What are the benefits compared to a pure heat pump?
An eligible dual fuel hybrid system:
Typically uses a smaller capacity heat pump unit and therefore costs less.
Installation is less disruptive because it is not necessary to change the radiators.
Removes the risk of an underperforming heating system in very cold weather.
Preserves existing investments (e.g. boiler, radiators, decorations).
Does not involve disconnecting an existing energy source making your system more resilient.
