A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior 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. 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. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner 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. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
