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. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is caused by higher temperatures underground 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. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your St-Ives property, call 01273 257407 .
