Should I have an air or ground source heat pump?
How they work?
Air source heat pumps work by extracting heat from the outside air, and a ground source heat pump takes heat from the earth.
The heat from either can then be used to heat the home. Via radiators, underfloor heating systems and they can provide hot water.
Should I choose a air or ground source heat pump?
They are a few factors that you will need to consider when choosing between an air source heat pump or a ground source heat pump, the two mainly being budget and outdoor space.
Ground source heat pumps require the ground to be dug, so it is a more timely and expensive option compared to an air source heat pump, however this means that you will not be able to see any equipment on the outside of your property. The benefits of an air source heat pump are that it is quicker and cheaper to install, as they do not require any land to be dug up. Though they will be mounted on the outside of your property, they look a bit like air conditioning units.
