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 to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.

You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with ground source heat pumps. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently.
