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 increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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 will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. When you compare heat pumps to electric resistance heaters, you are looking at savings of about £400 each year.
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. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
