Your heating can be 24/7 as you can never run out fuel with heat pumps. When you install a heat pump, you no longer require a furnace. You can install most heat pumps without planning permission. 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 extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with 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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. 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 equally reliable, but they are installed differently.
