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 fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. 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. In fact, you will likely save as much as £400 every year, compared to electric resistance heaters.
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. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. 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. 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. 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, however, they have different installation requirements.
