Why Ecodan is more efficient than other forms of heating solutions

With conventional boilers, 1kW of input energy provides less than 1kW of output energy or heat. With Ecodan, every 1kW of input energy is converted into an average of 3.6kW of output energy or heat, making it more than three times as efficient as conventional boilers and a natural choice for low cost heating and hot water. The Co-efficient of Performance (COP) of a heat pump is the ratio of the heat delivered, divided by the power consumed. The modern heat pump technology used in Ecodan and given in this example has the seasonal COP rating of 3.6.
