Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
The running costs of heat pumps are lower than the cost heat generated from electricity. Running a gas or oil boiler cost more to run than using a ground source heat pump. Depending on the type of ground source heat pump you install, you can expect savings of between 500 to pounds every year.
Heat pumps mean zero carbon emissions. And you can power heat pumps with a 100% renewable energy source. Regular heating systems cannot work this way. These systems create carbon emissions at the generating plant or in your home.
Heat pumps can work every day of the week as they don’t require fuel to work. When you install a heat pump, you no longer require a furnace. You will likely not require planning permission to install heat pump. Heat pumps are the heating technology of the future. Traditional sources of heat will be a thing of the past.

A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. You can even use the heat from a heat pump to heat water in the house.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of ground source heat pumps. When you compare heat pumps to electric resistance heaters, you are looking at savings of about £400 each year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. This means that you may likely spend more to run an air source heat pump compared to ground source heat pumps. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
