A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like 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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
