Hybrid heating systems

 

Hybrid systems (sometimes called bivalent systems) combine two or more heating technologies in one combined system. We recommend solar water heating and air source heat pumps as the best renewable technologies to partner with an existing oil heating system. It’s already possible to create a hybrid heating system using off the shelf components, but manufacturers are currently working on more complete solutions and these are likely to be available very soon.
