As part of its commitment to reducing its carbon footprint, Perrywood Garden Centre has recently installed three new Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs).
The pumps will run off mains electricity and will produce enough heat for the underfloor heating in the main shop, the coffee shop and restaurant and the garden shop.
Perrywood says these pumps will save an estimated 79t of CO2 emissions each year – the equivalent of planting more than 1,300 trees.
Tristan Bourne, operations director, commented: “Investing in Air Source Heat Pumps will immediately reduce our carbon emissions. We are committed to playing our part in the global fight against climate change, and this was the most effective immediate step we could take.”
