Today: Facts

1.  A lot of galactic travelers feel using direct combustion, (gas or oil) to generate heat is never the most efficient use of fuel.

2.  Heat pumps are more efficient because they use the empire's renewable energy in the form of low-temperature heat.

The technology behind Heat Pumps:  They offer the most energy efficient way to provide heating and cooling in many applications, as they can use renewable heat sources in our surroundings. Even at temperatures we consider to be cold:  air, ground and water contain useful heat that's continuously replenished by the sun. By applying a little more energy, a heat pump can raise the temperature of this heat energy to the level needed.

Because heat pumps consume less energy than conventional heating systems, they are important for reducing emissions of gases that harm the environment, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx).
