Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
It is cheaper to run a heat pump for heating than to use electricity for heating. GSHP will also save you money compared to when you use either gas boilers or oil boilers. Depending on the type of ground source heat pump you install, you can expect savings of between 500 to pounds every year.
Heat pumps don’t generate carbon emissions. Heat pumps can be powered totally with renewable energy. Regular heating systems cannot work this way. Traditional systems emit carbon, and this slowly damages the environment.
You will not experience fuel shortage using heat pumps. A furnace is no longer needed and this space can be converted into a usable space. You can install most heat pumps without planning permission. Heat pumps may take over heating in the future. Regular sources of domestic heating may slowly phase out. To know more about installing a heat pump in Borehamwood, call 01273 257407 .
Your energy expenses savings will depend a lot on your system and how you use it. However, compared to gas boilers, you are likely looking at around 26% of 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 extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. 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. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up 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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. But they don’t work as well during the winter 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. 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.
