Common heating systems will no longer be in vogue. To know more about installing a heat pump in Thatcham, call 01273 257407 .

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 system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. 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?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with ground source heat pumps. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when 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. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Thatcham.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Thatcham
When you talk about district heating, you are talking about tele-heating or heat networks. District heating moves heat from one central source to commercial and residential buildings in Thatcham.
District heating saves space and can heat communal buildings from a single source. When a smaller number of homes is heating from a source, it is known as communal heating. This system is great for a small number of buildings located close together.
