Heat pumps prices are usually high, taking into account the installation of the entire system, however the costs will vary for different heat pumps. The typical price range for a complete installation is between £9,000 and £17,000, to which the running costs have to be considered. Air to water heat pump costs usually start from £7,000 and goes up to £14,000. The running costs of heat pumps depend on your household, its insulation properties and size.
These running costs are prone to be lower than the ones of the previous systems, the mere difference being what system are you switching from. For instance, if you switch from gas, this will give you the lowest saving figures, while a typical home shifting from electricity could annually save more than £500.
The most important aspect when installing a heat pump system is that is done flawlessly. With definite differences in terms of the produced heat level, and the specific running time of the heat pump, the installer person in charge will have to explain the ideal settings.
