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.

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 temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of ground source heat pumps. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when 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. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But it is more energy efficient.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. 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 Hampshire
District heating is another name for heat networks or tele-heating. District heating distributes heat from a centralised source to commercial or residential buildings in Hampshire. This is a space saving technique that can heat many buildings from one source. When a smaller number of homes is heating from a source, it is known as communal heating. This system is great for a small number of buildings located close together.
Heat pumps make it possible to carry out communal or district heating in a cost-effective manner. This way, multiple houses can share the cost of installation and operation.
