Heat pumps take heat from a warm location and transfers it to a cold location, and vice versa. You can power heat pumps using different types of heat sources.

Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
Ground source heat pumps are a lot cheaper than heating via normal electricity. GSHP will also save you money compared to when you use either gas boilers 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. This is something you cannot get with LPG, coal, or oil systems. Traditional systems emit carbon, and this slowly damages the environment.
There is no fuel storage with heat pumps. A furnace is no longer needed and this space can be converted into a usable space. You may not need to apply for planning permission to install a heat pump on your property. Heat pumps are the main heat sources of the future. Conventional heating systems will become obsolete. Find out how you can get started with heat pump installation in Desborough by calling 01273 257407 today.
The amount of energy savings will depend on your use and your existing system. When you switch from a gas boiler, you are likely looking at 26% savings. This may mean savings of £500 to £1400 per year.

A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. 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 will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. In fact, you will likely save as much as £400 every year, compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently.
