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 unit will increase the temperature of the heat before releasing it inside. 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?
The savings from Air Source Heat Pumps is close to that of 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
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But it is more energy efficient.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. 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. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. 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.
