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. Your savings on heating expenses will be significant, however, this depends on the type of ground source heat pump installed.
These pumps don’t emit carbon and are environmentally friendly. You can choose to power your heat pumps using 100% renewable energy. This is a significant change from traditional heat sources. Conventional heating systems damage the environment by emitting dangerous wastes.
You will not experience fuel shortage using heat pumps. A heat pump will also save space in your home as you will not need a furnace. 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. Traditional sources of heat will be a thing of the past. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Bow.
The amount of energy savings will depend on your use and your existing system. Compared to a new gas boiler, you are likely to save at least 26% on your energy bills. This equates to around £500 to £1400 per year in energy savings.

A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps circulate air inside the house after extracting it from the outside. The unit will increase the temperature of the heat before releasing it inside. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. 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. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
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. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. 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, however, they have different installation requirements.
