Heat pumps are eco-friendly. And you can power heat pumps with a 100% renewable energy source. That’s in direct contrast to biomass, LPG, burning oil and coal. Other systems generate carbon emission, which is harmful to the environment.
There is nothing like shortage of fuel when you use heat pumps. When you install a heat pump, you no longer require a furnace.

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 fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
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 difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Southminster
When you talk about district heating, you are talking about tele-heating or heat networks. In Southminster, you can use district heating to heat houses from a single location.
This system saves space while heating multiple buildings from a central source. Communal heating involves heating a smaller number of buildings from one source. 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. The cost can be shared by all the connected buildings, reducing installation cost per house.
