The Energy Saving Trust estimates that a typical air source heat pump installation will cost you around £6000 – £8000, and a ground source heat pump installation can cost £10,000 – £18,000 depending on the amount of heat required. The question is, are they worth it?

There are also running costs that must be considered, since the heat pumps require electricity in order to operate. This can be calculated using the system’s total efficiency and your property’s energy needs. Therefore, if you have a system efficiency of 3, in order to generate 9,000kWh of heat, you will require 3,000 units (kWh) of electricity a year, which will cost £450 (assuming an electricity unit cost of 15p/kWh).
