Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
It is less expensive to heat your home using a heat pump than with regular electric heaters. The cost of running a ground source heat pump is also lower than running gas or oil boilers. Your savings on heating expenses will be significant, however, this depends on the type of ground source heat pump installed.
Heat pumps don’t generate carbon emissions. You can choose to power your heat pumps using 100% renewable energy. That’s in direct contrast to biomass, LPG, burning oil and coal. Traditional systems emit carbon, and this slowly damages the environment.
Your heating can be 24/7 as you can never run out fuel with heat pumps. A furnace is no longer needed and this space can be converted into a usable space. Chances are you will not need planning permission for heat pump installation. Heat pumps are positioning to becoming the primary source of domestic heating in the future. Common heating systems will no longer be in vogue. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Rickmansworth.
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
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with ground source heat pumps. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps 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. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
