Hot & Cool: heat pumps in Sweden

Over the past 3 years, the number of heat pumps sold in Sweden has almost doubled. Outside district heating areas, heat pumps have become the standard solution for private homes. Every second heat pump in Europe - not including air-to-air systems, is installed in Sweden. In 2004, almost 70,000 new heat pumps have been installed. Often, the system selected is a ground-source heat pump. Typical depth of the bore hole is 100-150 m.
