Your savings on heating expenses will be significant, however, this depends on the type of ground source heat pump installed.
Heat pumps mean zero carbon emissions. In fact, you can power your heat pump with renewable energy entirely. That’s in direct contrast to biomass, LPG, burning oil and coal. 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 furnace is no longer needed and this space can be converted into a usable space.

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. 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 and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. 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 a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. But they don’t work as well during the winter 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, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
