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 to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
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. 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. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. 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. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. 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. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
