Author: John Cantor

Cover price £14.99.
This book is based on my 30 years experience with heat pumps, and attempts to demystify a technology that is clouded by hype and misconception. The book
is mostly aimed at the consumer, and lays out the options
and issues starting from basic first principles.
It has a refreshingly straightforward approach, with
enough technical detail to satisfy architects and installers. It is completely jargon-free, and tackles
all types of system. It discusses different building
types and their suitability for this technology in an
un-biased and neutral way.
It has plenty of photographs and is nicely illustrated by Gavin Harper. With enough facts and figures to make it a useful reference book, it also discusses wider environmental issues.
Available from http://www.heatpumps.co.uk/HeatPumpBook.htm for £15 (incl. post) , but you will find cheaper places if you search.
