- CORGI HomePlan reports 1 in 10 adults in Britain have experienced carbon monoxide poisoning to some degree in their home.
- NHS Choices reports that 200 people go to hospital with suspected CO poisoning per annum
- Ground source heat pumps are electrically-driven with no combustion, so there is no risk of this deadly gas being emitted.
- Ground source heat pumps produce no point of use emissions of any pollution: carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO₂), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Sulphur Oxides (SOx) or particulates.
Kensa’s Technical Director, Guy Cashmore says:
Each year around 40 people in the UK are killed by carbon monoxide poisoning, almost all of them caused by faulty gas appliances.
Ground source heat pumps are safe, and also offer wider environmental and health benefits including reducing air pollution and ultimately climate change.
