A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air source heat pumps take air from the outside and distributes it inside the house. The system regulates the temperature of the heat. 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?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. 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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature 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. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. 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.
