Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
It is cheaper to run a heat pump for heating than to use electricity for heating. Compared to gas or oil boilers, ground source heat pumps are more cost effective. 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.
Heat pumps are eco-friendly. These systems can be powered with 100% renewable energy. This is a significant change from traditional heat sources. Other systems generate carbon emission, which is harmful to the environment.
Your heating can be 24/7 as you can never run out fuel with heat pumps. When you install a heat pump, you no longer require a furnace. Chances are you will not need planning permission for heat pump installation. Heat pumps may take over heating in the future. Regular sources of domestic heating may slowly phase out.

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 temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated water.
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. 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
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. However, you will enjoy better 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. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. 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. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
