Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
Heating your property using a heat pump will cost less than using electricity systems. The cost of running a ground source heat pump is also lower than running gas 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.
These pumps don’t emit carbon and are environmentally friendly. Heat pumps can be powered totally with renewable energy. This is something you cannot get with LPG, coal, or oil systems. Traditional systems emit carbon, and this slowly damages the environment.
Heat pumps can work every day of the week as they don’t require fuel to work. When you install a heat pump, you no longer require a furnace. You will likely not require planning permission to install heat pump. Heat pumps are the heating technology of the future. Regular sources of domestic heating may slowly phase out. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Wickham.
How much you save every month will depend on the system you choose and your usage. When you switch from a gas boiler, you are likely looking at 26% savings. This can amount to between £500 to £1400 in savings every year.

A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. 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?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. 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 between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently. To know more about installing a heat pump in Wickham, call 01273 257407 .
