Builders and homeowners who currently want to buy new heat pumps for their buildings have to be patient: Customers currently have to wait between six and 18 months, the Federal Association of Heat Pumps told the “Bild” newspaper. But that is a wide range. It should be the deciding factor in the purchase of property owners who want to install a new heating system in the technical room by next winter at the latest. According to plans by the federal government, manufacturers are to deliver 500,000 heat pumps per year in Germany as early as next year, and there could be an indirect obligation to use heat pumps from the beginning of 2024. Is that even possible?
WELT asked the leading German manufacturers about the current delivery times for the devices.
