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. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can even use the heat from a heat pump to heat water in the house.
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
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.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. 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. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your Amersham property, call 01273 257407 .
