Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
Ground source heat pumps are a lot cheaper than heating via normal electricity. The cost of running a ground source heat pump is also lower than running gas 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.
Heat pumps don’t generate carbon emissions. And you can power heat pumps with a 100% renewable energy source. This is totally different from what you get using regular heating systems. Traditional systems emit carbon, and this slowly damages the environment.
There is no fuel storage with heat pumps. You don’t take up the space required for a furnace when you have a heat pump installed. Chances are you will not need planning permission for heat pump installation. Heat pumps are positioning to becoming the primary source of domestic heating in the future. Regular sources of domestic heating may slowly phase out. Learn more about how you too can install a heat pump in Dorset by calling our experts on Dorset.

A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. 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. 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?
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. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. 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. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Dorset
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 Dorset.
This is a space saving technique that can heat many buildings from one source. Communal heating is ideal for heating a smaller number of homes. Communal heating is ideal for flats and clusters of buildings that use the same heat source.
Heat pumps make it possible to carry out communal or district heating in a cost-effective manner. Also, many units of occupation can split the cost of installation among themselves.
