Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
The running costs of heat pumps are lower than the cost heat generated from electricity. Compared to gas or oil boilers, ground source heat pumps are more cost effective. Depending on the type of ground source heat pump you install, you can expect savings of between 500 to pounds every year.
With heat pumps, carbon emissions will be a thing of the past. In fact, you can power your heat pump with renewable energy entirely. This is totally different from what you get using regular heating systems. Conventional heating systems damage the environment by emitting dangerous wastes.
There is no fuel storage with heat pumps. You save the space required for a furnace when you install a heat pump. You may not need to apply for planning permission to install a heat pump on your property. In the future, heat pumps will be the main source of heating in homes. Regular sources of domestic heating may slowly phase out. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Cambridge.
How much you save every month will depend on the system you choose and your usage. However, compared to gas boilers, you are likely looking at around 26% of savings. This may mean savings of £500 to £1400 per year.

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 system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up 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. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. 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.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. 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, 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.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Cambridge
When you hear district heating, it means heat networks or tele-heating. District heating distributes heat from a centralised source to commercial or residential buildings in Cambridge.
District heating not only saves space, it also allows multiple buildings to be heated from a single point. Communal heating involves heat transfer to many dwellings. This system is great for a small number of buildings located close together.
