And when it comes to the use of electricity, as opposed to gas, to generate heat, let’s take this example:
To provide 1 kWh of gas energy in your home using a GAHP, just 1.1 kWh of gas needs to be produced initially. Just 0.1 kWh are lost in the complete supply chain.
In comparison, 1.8 kWh of electrical energy need to be produced to supply 1 kWh for an equivalent electric air source heat pump. The grid losses are 0.8 kWh.
