Heat pumps are eco-friendly. These systems can be powered with 100% renewable energy. That’s in direct contrast to biomass, LPG, burning oil and coal. Your old system emits harmful chemicals into the environment.
You will not experience fuel shortage using heat pumps. You save the space required for a furnace when you install a heat pump. 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
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. 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?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of 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 tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. 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 makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. 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. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. So, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
