If you are looking to install a Dimplex Ground Source Heat Pump you may want to know some specifics about this type of heat pump and other brands of heat pumps first.

What Is the Difference Between Dimplex Ground and Air Source Heat Pumps?

If you are living in a climate which needs reasonable heating and cooling needs, a heat pump can offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners.

Much like a home refrigerator, Dimplex heat pumps use electricity to transfer heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer.

This is how heat pumps work during the heating season, as heat pumps move warmth from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors.

Heat pumps move heat rather than generate heat, therefore, heat pumps can provide equal space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

There are three types of heat pumps:

  • Air-To-Air
  • Water Source
  • Ground Source

Costs and savings with Dimplex Ground Source Heat Pumps

Installing a typical system costs around £7,000 to £11,000. Running costs will vary depending on a number of factors including the size of your home, how well insulated it is and what room temperatures you are aiming to achieve.

Savings with Dimplex Heat Pumps

Energy saving can vary and will depend on what system you use now, as well as what you are replacing it with. Savings on energy may be affected by:

Your heat distribution system

Many of us overestimate the power of our radiators. If possible it is recommended that you underfloor heating installed in your home as they can be much more efficient than radiators.

If your home or business does not have underfloor, it is advised that you use the largest radiators you can. At Heat Pumps Scotland we can recommend what system will be best for you.

Your fuel costs

Even though you have this type of heat pump installed you still have to pay fuel bills with a heat pump because it is powered by electricity, but you will save on the fuel you are replacing.

Your old heating system

If your old heating system was incompetent, you are more likely to see lower running costs with a new heat pump.

Water heating

If you purchase a Dimplex heat pump that provides hot water, then this could limit the overall efficiency. It may be worth your while to consider solar water heating which will provide hot water in the summer and help keep your heat pump efficiency up.

Using controls

Make sure that once your heat pump is installed that you get the most out of it. This is possible by setting the heating to come on for longer hours. It is possible for you to set the thermostat lower and still feel comfortable.

Your installer should explain to you how to control the system so you can use it most effectively.These are the savings you might make every year when replacing an existing heating system in an average four-bedroom detached home with an average air source heat pump installation.
