Danish homeowners highly satisfied with heat pumps

| 98% of Danish homeowners who have installed a heat pump were satisfied with their heat pump equipment, their installation and the heating cost savings they realised, according to a report by the Danish Energy Agency on the Danish experience with heat pumps and the barriers to a wider uptake of the technology in the country.

Today about 20,000 to 25,000 air source or ground source heat pumps are installed in Danish houses.
