Heat Pump FAQs
How do air and ground source heat pumps work?
Heat pumps work by absorbing heat from the air, ground, or water, then “pumping” it around a building. More specifically:
- Heat from the air or ground is blown over a series of tubes filled with a refrigerant fluid. The fluid heats up, turning it into a gas.
- The hot gas is passed through a compressor, increasing its pressure and temperature.
- The gas moves into an internal heat exchanger, with the heat it brings being transferred into the surrounding air or water. This heat is then blown around your home.
- The gas refrigerant condenses back into a liquid for future use.
How much do heat pumps cost to install?
The exact cost of installing a heat pump depends on many factors, including whether you choose air or ground source, the size of the property, the brand of pump, and much more.
Because they are more complex to install, ground source pumps are typically more expensive than air source pumps.
At Cool-Tec, we offer some of the most competitively priced heat pump installations on the market. We’ll work with you to determine your needs, balancing affordability with efficiency to get you the very best option for your budget and property type.
Are ground or air source pumps better?
Whether you should choose a ground or air source pump depends on what’s most important to you in a heater.
- Air source pumps have a lower upfront cost and are much quicker to install. They take up less room and don’t require heavy landscaping work on your garden.
- Ground source pumps are usually more efficient at heating your home year round. This is because heat is transferred through the ground via the movement of water, which can hold more heat than air. Air is also more prone to fluctuating temperatures. In addition, ground source pumps operate nearly silently, while air source pumps generate some noise.
Can a heat pump replace a boiler?
Absolutely. A heat pump will usually generate all the heating and hot water you need for your home.
In fact, the government is currently offering a £5,000 grant to people replacing their gas or oil boiler with a low carbon heating system (such as heat pumps), and have cut VAT on heat pumps to zero. It’s the perfect time to upgrade, especially as new gas boilers will be banned from as early as 2025.
Are heat pumps eco-friendly?
Because they gain energy from renewable sources, heat pumps produce no emissions. This makes them far more eco-friendly than traditional fossil fuel heaters.
Is heat pump installation disruptive?
Air source pumps are quicker and easier to install than ground source, as ground source pumps require a lot more planning and preparation. The time it takes to install a heat pump varies between days to weeks, depending on the system chosen.
Because of our decades of experience installing all types of climate control, we know how to install heat pumps with a minimum of disruption. We will carry out every step of the installation with care and precision, giving you complete peace of mind that your home is in good hands.
Can a heat pump be used for cooling?
Yes! Despite the name, heat pumps can actually cool your home as well as heat it. These do this by transferring warm indoor air to the outside.
Are heat pumps noisy?
Both ground and air pumps are typically quieter than fossil fuel heaters, but ground pumps are especially so.
Because ground pumps take heat from the ground, not the air, they don’t need a fan. This makes them incredibly quiet to run. Air pumps are slightly louder, around the same decimal as an air conditioner. Your installer will make sure the unit isn’t placed anywhere that could disturb you or your neighbours.
How big are heat pumps?
Air source heat pumps are typically 1 to 1.5 metres tall and 0.5 to 1 metre wide. Because ground source heat pumps are mostly underground, they require more space – either a bore hole as deep as 100m, or a horizontal space roughly 700 square metres across.
Is a heat pump worth it?
Heat pumps aren’t cheap to install, but they can save you a significant amount on your energy bills in the long term – installing one will typically save you £6,700 over its lifetime, compared to a gas boiler. They also help reduce your carbon emissions.
It’s a good idea to check if you quality for any government grants, as they could save you thousands on your installation.
