Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
It is cheaper to run a heat pump for heating than to use electricity for heating. 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 are eco-friendly. And you can power heat pumps with a 100% renewable energy source. That’s in direct contrast to biomass, LPG, burning oil and coal. Conventional heating systems damage the environment by emitting dangerous wastes.
There is no fuel storage with heat pumps. A heat pump will also save space in your home as you will not need a furnace. You may not need to apply for planning permission to install a heat pump on your property. Heat pumps are the main heat sources of the future. Conventional heating systems will become obsolete.

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 increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. 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. 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
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. 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. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. 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, but the installation process is different. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Chatham.

District heating can also refer to tele-heating or heat networks. District heating distributes heat from a centralised source to commercial or residential buildings in Chatham.
