How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Powered by electricity, heat pumps move heated air from where it is harvested to where it is needed. The refrigerant in the heat pump helps move the heat from one place to another. Heat pumps take heat from a warm location and transfers it to a cold location, and vice versa. Heat pumps can be powered via various sources of heat.

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 fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. 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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. But it is more energy efficient.
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 tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
