Electric boiler heating and ground source heat pump which is better
Electric boilers and ground source heat pumps are the two commonly used methods of central heating, so which one is better? Let's analyze it below.
First: Product price comparison
Both of them need to be connected with pipes to be able to heat. The price of electric boilers is generally several hundred to tens of thousands of yuan, and the price of geothermal heat pumps is similar.
Second: Comparison of installation costs
室外打井，施工工艺复杂，难度大，费用自然就高。 The installation of the electric boiler is relatively simple, and it can be used as long as it is connected to the pipeline. Therefore, it does not require too much installation cost. The ground source heat pump requires outdoor well drilling. The construction process is complex, difficult, and the cost is naturally high.
Third: Comparison of heating costs
所以对于用电紧张地区，不宜将其作为室内唯一供暖源。 Electric boilers use electrical energy for heating, so it should not be used as the only indoor heating source in areas where electricity is tight. Ground source heat pump is a green and environmentally friendly building cooling / heating method. This system uses shallow underground geothermal resources to exchange cold and heat with indoor air. The ground source heat pump “takes out” the heat from the ground energy in winter, and raises the temperature to supply indoor heating.
Fourth: environmental comparison
Both are environmental resources, so it doesn't matter which is better.
In short, if you choose short-term heating and convenience, electric boilers have advantages. After all, the country's electricity consumption is very convenient now.
