Switch to ground source heat pump with RHI

I have moved to a cottage in the Forest of Dean which has an oil boiler with oil tank in the garden. I was looking into the possibility of switching to a ground/air source heat pump. I spoke to a local service - Forest Eco Systems - which installs them, and based on my property's EPC they suggest that I could get RHI equal to £25000 over 7 years and the cost of the project would be around £20000. I have the money available, but as it is a big outlay I am looking to get more information about whether this is the best option. I could for example just continue with the old oil boiler for the time being or opt for air source heat pump which I have been quoted for £14000 from the same company (with £11000 RHI over 7 years). Any wisdom on this would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
