  1. Heat pumps are mentioned under the Low Energy Houses section. Is that like a geothermal heat pump?

    Hi Mary

    Thank you for your question! I have just received this answer from my co-worker:

    “Low Energy Houses does use a very low temperatures for their heating systems. Floorheating or the newer types use wallheating systems.

    Heat pump systems general, air/Water or water/Water have the highest effect by using low temperature, 20-35 degr.

    Kind Regards
