A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of ground source heat pumps. In fact, you will likely save as much as £400 every year, compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. This means that you may likely spend more to run an air source heat pump compared to ground source heat pumps. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Berkshire.
