A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The unit will increase the temperature of the heat before releasing it inside. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. 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
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. 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. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. But they don’t work as well during the winter 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, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your Ely property, call 01273 257407 .

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Ely
When you hear district heating, it means heat networks or tele-heating. District heating serves heat to buildings in Ely from one central location.
This system saves space while heating multiple buildings from a central source. Communal heating on the other hand involves heating a number of homes. This system is great for a small number of buildings located close together.
Heat pumps are ideal for communal and district heating because of their cost effectiveness. Also, many units of occupation can split the cost of installation among themselves.
Fast and easy installation
When we install heat pumps, we are fast and reliable. When it comes to ground source heat pump, the land has to be dug. In this case, more time may be needed. But we will work around you to ensure that your daily routines are not disrupted. Our installers are professional, respectful, and friendly.

The second is if big hallways and doorways exist in your property that links to your room. For a typical building, a heat pump of between 4 kW to 16 kW will be sufficient.
