To fit a typical heat pump in the UK, you will need between £10,000 and £20,000. Many factors are to be considered when estimating the cost purchasing and installing an air heat pump in your home; such as your insulation and the size of your home.
The running cost will also depend on things such as the size of your home. If you have a bigger space, you will need more power to heat it. Also, homes that are well-insulated don’t lose too much heat, so the cost of running the system will be relatively low. The types of radiators will also play a central role in determining what it would cost to install the heat pump in your home.
The savings made by the homeowners on the installation depends on the fuel they are upgrading from. For instance, if you are upgrading from gas, then your gas use will go down, while electricity consumption will go up. Therefore, it is not easy to accurately tell the amount someone will save from upgrading to an air source heat pump.
In case you are constructing a new home, then an air source pump could be the ideal option. This is because, compared to other systems, they are very easy to install, and you can also choose to include underfloor heating. Users can also choose to add solar panels to supply hot water during summer. The solar panels can also make it easier for the system to heat your home.
