Title: Are heat pumps any good.
Post by: isc555 on July 26, 2017, 04:17:56 PM
I have been considering fitting a ground source heat pump but seem to be getting lots of conflicting advice such as they are problematic plus they are not as efficient in the real world as the manufactures suggest.  Is it worth going down this route especially as I do have mains gas?

Surely they are! I've been also considering whether it's worth the investment. A ground source might become problematic, due to a lower depth of installation. However, try to look at air source heat pumps too. They are a good alternative, in case you are are not sure whether to get a ground source heat pump. (

We live in a rural area in the UK and recently installed an 18kW air source heat pump to switch from an oil boiler. So far itís been great.

People have a lot of questions about ASHPs and how they differ so you can read about our system overview here:

Or you can watch an overview of our air source central heating on YouTube:

We hope this casts some light on moving from an oil boiler to ASHP, which is what most people will be considering.

This option benefits us in consumption and efficiency, reduces energy consumption up to 75% and emits less polluting gases. you can check several models in
