Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
The running costs of heat pumps are lower than the cost heat generated from electricity. GSHP will also save you money compared to when you use either gas boilers or oil boilers. You can save as much as 750 pounds every year with a ground source heat pump, but this also depends on the system you choose.
These pumps don’t emit carbon and are environmentally friendly. You can choose to power your heat pumps using 100% renewable energy. Regular heating systems cannot work this way. Traditional systems emit carbon, and this slowly damages the environment.
There is no fuel storage with heat pumps. You save the space required for a furnace when you install a heat pump. 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. Learn more about how you too can install a heat pump in Reading by calling our experts on Reading.
The amount of energy savings will depend on your use and your existing system. Nevertheless, you are looking at savings within the range of 26%, especially compared to gas boilers. This amounts to between £500 and £1400 in savings every year.

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. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. So, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
