Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
Heating your property using a heat pump will cost less than using electricity systems. GSHP will also save you money compared to when you use either gas boilers or oil boilers. The savings your will enjoy depends on the type of system you choose, but the savings will be significant.

There is nothing like shortage of fuel when you use heat pumps. A furnace is no longer needed and this space can be converted into a usable space. You will likely not require planning permission to install heat pump. In the future, heat pumps will be the main source of heating in homes. 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 system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. You can even use the heat from a heat pump to heat water in the house.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. 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
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a 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. But you will need to excavate the land 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.
