Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
It is cheaper to run a heat pump for heating than to use electricity for heating. Running a gas or oil boiler cost more to run than using a ground source heat pump. Your savings on heating expenses will be significant, however, this depends on the type of ground source heat pump installed.
Heat pumps don’t generate carbon emissions. Heat pumps can be powered totally with renewable energy. This is something you cannot get with LPG, coal, or oil systems. These systems create carbon emissions at the generating plant or in your home.
There is nothing like shortage of fuel when you use heat pumps. A heat pump will also save space in your home as you will not need a furnace. You may not need to apply for planning permission to install a heat pump on your property. Heat pumps are positioning to becoming the primary source of domestic heating in the future. Regular sources of domestic heating may slowly phase out. To know more about installing a heat pump in Sandhurst, call 01273 257407 .

A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The unit will increase the temperature of the heat before releasing it inside. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. 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. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different. To know more about installing a heat pump in Sandhurst, call 01273 257407 .

This is a space saving technique that can heat many buildings from one source. Communal heating involves heating a smaller number of buildings from one source. This system is great for a small number of buildings located close together.
