  1. I know this was posted a few months ago but now in the UK people are beginning to realise that these heat pumps especially air source are not worth it as our housing stock are so thermally inefficient that it would work out more expensive to run. I could buy a lot of electricity and gas for that install price.

  2. Usually, a high temperature differential heat pumps are expensive. And these are needed for hydronic heating system which require about 180 f. I was down that rabbit hole 🙂

  3. Interesting point you made about landlords and tenants and the relationship they have regarding the well-being of the home. It's a bit of a stretch, but the same could be said across many aspects of society, including public housing. If the tenants don't really have a stake in the ownership, and therefore well-being of the home, they are less likely to take care of it. Same with the actual ownership, wether it's with a private company, landlord, or government.

  4. Just dropping a comment to condemn all the people advocating for the use of force(government regulations/mandates/tax/subsidies) to force people to invest in heat pumps/efficiency or anything really. I do have an air source heat pump and i did my own math on that however everyone's situation is different. Everyone is their own person and you shouldn't be putting a gun to their head to go the way you tell them to.

  5. I pay 5.63 cents per KWH electricity, but my natural gas bill is so confusing that my engineering degree can't calculate a useful price. It's in MCF, not therms. They are two prices – distribution and aggregation, and then a Basic Service Charge. Positive and negative taxes?

  6. A perspective to consider regarding HVAC systems for rentals is that if the tenant has to pay the utility bill, they will try to conserve energy, whereas if they don't, they will happily run all the hot water, hvac with the doors and windows open, to their hearts' content with no regard to cost or waste. You're lucky they don't trash the place when they move out as it is.

  7. Use your house as a battery, all you have to do is make in uncomfortable cold all morning until it hits room temperature later in the day. I love getting behind green initiatives especially ones that save me money, but this is like passing on desert because you think it costs $2 too much. You are missing out and you have to wear a sweater in your house. I don't understand, I could get behind it is you went to say 72 and ran it when during less peak hours of the day. But extremes are most often considered bad for a reason.

  8. People act like everyone owns their home, and actually lives in a home.
    News flash! Like way more than 50% of the country doesn't own a house. They live in buildings that they do not control decision making over. Or rent someone else's.

  9. "That whole thing about 100 companies"

    Yes I think most people who make those argument never actually read any really articles on this… For some reason people seems to be surprise when I bring up that this is about supply not direct emissions ..
    It makes me a little sad because it might be an indication of how little they actually know about the science behind climate change…
    It's probably a "want to do the right thing without any understanding anything about the science " Thing… Which is fine… But I wish people would try to understand the science a little more..

  10. I only wish there was a YouTube channel that could explain how heat pumps, and refrigeration in general, actually work. Anyone got a link?

    Perhaps you could do a video on that.

    Haha!!

  11. Man I wish I could try the thermal battery trick in my home. Unfortunately I live on the top floor of an apartment building where my room can easily raise 10°C in around 6 hours. Also I have to use a portable AC (bonus points, it's 1 hose) cause landlord doesn't want window units.

  12. This video, along with your heat pumps and other energy efficiently related video's, have really made me more aware of how importat it is and will be moving forward. I'll definitely keep this in mind when I'm to the point of home ownership

  13. really wonderful words about the end use consumption not being a guilt free activity, as in intellectually dishonest. That kind of logic is all over reddit and while the statistics are true, and legislation needs to be created to control the largest producers, there is some responsibility as the end user. ALSO your conversation about landlords and cost/benefit was so enlightening. I almost wish you covered more political topics but honestly I understand why you dont

  14. THANK YOU for calling out the 71/100 companies thing. Those companies aren't burning oil just for funsies, we as consumers are the ones buying a lot of the energy they produce.

  15. Odd how standard units adds up: here (Italy) natural Gas is sold by the standard cubic meter (1 m^3 at 15 C at 1atm) and usually has an energy content (at least on my bills) of 38MJ/sm^3 that is roughly 10,5 kWh/Sm^3 (or 10 kWh after a 105% boiler) yes here we give efficiencies over LHV but gas is sold by HHV. Anyway the calculations are easy enough : cost by the Sm^3 divided by 10 to get the cost per kWh. And yes our bills have coefficients to adjust meter reading to altitude and also the average HHV but that’s for another comment.

  16. So why not cobble together some things that have economy of scale already? Use a beer line cooling liquid/refrigerant exchanger, normal outdoor plumbing, a normal well driller, and an otherwise bog standard reversible heat pump?

  17. My question is why haven't they updated the main style heat pump to be inverter driven. You see more energy savings in the mini split inverter systems. Also other brands need to follow what Mitsubishi and LG is doing. They have systems that can have 100% heating down to 4f.
