A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps circulate air inside the house after extracting it from the outside. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. 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?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. 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. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. 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, but the installation process is different. To know more about installing a heat pump in Maidenhead, call 01273 257407 .
