Ground And Air Source Heat Pumps

Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) and Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) work a little like a refrigerator, but instead of removing heat from your food, they recover heat stored in the environment, concentrate it, then transfer it to your hot water or heating system. All this heat is free and abundant, the only thing you pay for is the electric to run it. If you wish to be totally environmentally friendly, this power may be sourced from green energy such as Solar PV, Wind or Hyrdo.

Heat Pump

Although Heat Pumps are more expensive to buy than a gas boiler, they are up 4.5 times more efficient and attract a generous government grant. Generally it takes approximately 8 years to recover your investment assuming no capital gain to the property, which of course it will have with more and more people becoming energy and environmentally conscious and aware. In fact on average, your house will be heated for less than of the kilowattage of a gas or oil boiler, saving you a huge amount of money, indeed in 8 years if fuel continues to rise at the current rates, the difference in installation costs will be saved each and every year. The sun is free, is not affected by war or politics and if one thing is sure in life it is that oil and gas will rise in price, then run out.
