A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
The savings from Air Source Heat Pumps is close to that of Ground Source Heat Pumps. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
