Heating your property using a heat pump will cost less than using electricity systems. 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.

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. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. 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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. 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. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. 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. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
