A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps circulate air inside the house after extracting it from the outside. The system regulates the temperature of the heat. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. When you compare heat pumps to electric resistance heaters, you are looking at savings of about £400 each year.
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. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. 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. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently.
