Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
Ground source heat pumps are a lot cheaper than heating via normal electricity. Running a gas or oil boiler cost more to run than using a ground source heat pump. Your savings on heating expenses will be significant, however, this depends on the type of ground source heat pump installed.

There is no fuel storage with heat pumps. When you install a heat pump, you no longer require a furnace. Chances are you will not need planning permission for heat pump installation. Heat pumps are the heating technology of the future. Regular heating systems may be a thing of the past. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your Southampton property, call 01273 257407 .

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 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. 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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But it is more energy efficient.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. 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. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
