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 regulates the temperature of the heat. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of 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
It can be a tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. This means that you may likely spend more to run an air source heat pump compared to ground source heat pumps. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. However, they tend to lose efficiency 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.
