Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
It is cheaper to run a heat pump for heating than to use electricity for heating. Compared to gas or oil boilers, ground source heat pumps are more cost effective. Your savings depends on the type of Ground Source Heat Pump you choose but can be anything up to a £750 plus saving.
Heat pumps mean zero carbon emissions. And you can power heat pumps with a 100% renewable energy source. This is something you cannot get with LPG, coal, or oil systems. Other systems generate carbon emission, which is harmful to the environment.
Heat pumps can work every day of the week as they don’t require fuel to work. A furnace is no longer needed and this space can be converted into a usable space. 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. Traditional sources of heat will be a thing of the past. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your Dorchester property, call 01273 257407 .
The amount of energy savings will depend on your use and your existing system. Compared to a new gas boiler, you are likely to save at least 26% on your energy bills. This can amount to between £500 to £1400 in savings every 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 temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. 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. In fact, you will likely save as much as £400 every year, compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Dorchester.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Dorchester
When you hear district heating, it means heat networks or tele-heating. District heating moves heat from one central source to commercial and residential buildings in Dorchester.
District heating saves space and can heat communal buildings from a single source. Communal heating involves heat transfer to many dwellings. Communal heating is ideal for flats and clusters of buildings that use the same heat source.
Heat pumps are ideal for communal and district heating because of their cost effectiveness. This way, multiple houses can share the cost of installation and operation.
