A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. 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. 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 tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. However, it is more expensive to install 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. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. 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 quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
