In this episode, Rob talks to Clive Archer and Marc Youle Grayling who are the directors of Optimum Energy. For more than 15 years they have been working actively in the heat pump and renewable technology sectors. Optimum Energy has gained a reputation for tackling unusual or large renewable energy installations others avoid.
Today, they are sharing their knowledge by training others and taking part in podcasts like this one. They explain how heat pumps work, why they are so efficient, the renewable heat incentive scheme, and some other ways to cover the installation cost. As well as busting, some heat pump myths.

- Clive and Marc have been asked by the government to educate people about renewable energy.
- Heat pumps have been in use in the UK since the 1950s.
- There isn´t a property that cannot have a heat pump.
- With the government grants that are available demand for heat pumps is on the increase.
- Typically, the output of heat energy you get from a heat pump is between 2.5 and 4 times the amount of electrical energy you use to run it.
- They work efficiently down to -20.
- Heat pumps work with existing heat systems – radiators and underfloor heating.
