Ground source heat pumps are a lot cheaper than heating via normal electricity. Compared to gas or oil boilers, ground source heat pumps are more cost effective. Depending on the type of ground source heat pump you install, you can expect savings of between 500 to pounds every year.
These pumps don’t emit carbon and are environmentally friendly. And you can power heat pumps with a 100% renewable energy source. This is something you cannot get with LPG, coal, or oil systems. These systems create carbon emissions at the generating plant or in your home.
There is nothing like shortage of fuel when you use heat pumps. A heat pump will also save space in your home as you will not need a furnace. 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. Conventional heating systems will become obsolete.

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 temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of 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. 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 it is 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 caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. 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.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Southwark
District heating can also refer to tele-heating or heat networks. District heating serves heat to buildings in Southwark from one central location.
This system saves space while heating multiple buildings from a central source. When a smaller number of homes is heating from a source, it is known as communal heating. Communal heating is ideal for flats and clusters of buildings that use the same heat source.
When it comes to cost effective district or communal heating, heat pumps are ideal. Plus, multiple homes can share the cost of installation among themselves.
