With the government handing out cash incentives to fit heat pumps, you may well be considering ditching your old boiler. But first you have to decide which heat pump to go for: a ground source pump or an air source pump?
A ground source pump pumps water through pipes beneath the ground to harness natural heat. Ideally, it uses less electricity to work it than it produces. Read this Which guide to decide whether a ground source pump is right for you.
An air source pump transfers warmth from the air, warms it up further, and transports it around your home. Read this Which guide to determine whether an air source pump is a better option for you.
If you’ve decided to go for an air source heat pump, read this guide and this guide to help you choose the best model for your home.
