Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
It is less expensive to heat your home using a heat pump than with regular electric heaters. Ground Source Heat Pumps also save money compared to gas boilers and oil boilers. Depending on the type of ground source heat pump you install, you can expect savings of between 500 to pounds every year.
Heat pumps are eco-friendly. And you can power heat pumps with a 100% renewable energy source. This is a significant change from traditional heat sources. Traditional systems emit carbon, and this slowly damages the environment.
Heat pumps can work every day of the week as they don’t require fuel to work. A furnace is no longer needed and this space can be converted into a usable space. Chances are you will not need planning permission for heat pump installation. Heat pumps are the main heat sources of the future. Regular heating systems may be a thing of the past. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Uxbridge.

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 makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. When you compare heat pumps to electric resistance heaters, you are looking at savings of about £400 each year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different. To know more about installing a heat pump in Uxbridge, call 01273 257407 .

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Uxbridge
When you hear district heating, it means heat networks or tele-heating. From just one location in Uxbridge, district heating can heat multiple buildings.
District heating not only saves space, it also allows multiple buildings to be heated from a single point. Communal heating on the other hand involves heating a number of homes. Communal heating works best when dwellings are located close to one another.
Heat pumps are popular with district and communal heating because they save energy. This way, multiple houses can share the cost of installation and operation.
