Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
It is cheaper to run a heat pump for heating than to use electricity for heating. Running a gas or oil boiler cost more to run than using a ground source heat pump. 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.

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 regulates the temperature of the heat. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. 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. 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
It can be a tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But it is more energy efficient.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in 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. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. 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, however, they have different installation requirements.
