The running costs of heat pumps are lower than the cost heat generated from electricity. The cost of running a ground source heat pump is also lower than running gas or oil boilers. 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. Heat pumps can be powered totally with renewable energy. Regular heating systems cannot work this way. 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 heating technology of the future. Traditional sources of heat will be a thing of the past.

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 system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
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
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 stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than 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. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. 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, but the installation process is different.
