That is what Remeha, producer of central heating boilers and heat pumps, says to the AD. According to the company, people make the decision to switch mainly for financial reasons, rather than for environmental benefits.
A hybrid water pump is a combination of a central heating boiler and water pump. The central heating boiler only burns on very cold days and for hot water. A hybrid water pump reduces the gas consumption of a household by approximately half.
After deduction of the subsidy, which has been increased this year, the device is available for at least 3000 euros. The problem with a water pump is that it is quite expensive to install. So it takes a while before you get the investment out.
According to heating producer Intergas, there is ‘an enormous increase’ in the demand for hybrid heat pumps. The company emphasizes that this is a result of the high gas price.
Research by Vereniging Eigen Huis shows that 40 percent of the Dutch are considering purchasing a hybrid water pump. Previously it was only 33 percent. This makes the thing the most popular measure during the energy crisis, followed by solar panels.
