How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps harvest heated air with the aid of electricity and transfers it to the part of the house where it is needed. Heat pumps work by moving refrigerant within the system. Heat pumps take heat from a warm location and transfers it to a cold location, and vice versa. Heat pumps can be operated off various sources of energy.

Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
It is less expensive to heat your home using a heat pump than with regular electric heaters. 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.
Heat pumps are eco-friendly. You can choose to power your heat pumps using 100% renewable energy. This is a significant change from traditional heat sources. Traditional systems emit carbon, and this slowly damages the environment.
Your heating can be 24/7 as you can never run out fuel with heat pumps. You don’t take up the space required for a furnace when you have a heat pump installed. You may not need to apply for planning permission to install a heat pump on your property. Heat pumps may take over heating in 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 Lyme-Regis by calling our experts on Lyme-Regis.

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. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
The savings from Air Source Heat Pumps is close to that of Ground Source Heat Pumps. 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. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
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 consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. 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. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Lyme-Regis.
