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. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can even use the heat from a heat pump to heat water in the house.
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. 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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few 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.
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 will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition 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 equally reliable, but they are installed differently.

District heating can also refer to tele-heating or heat networks. District heating distributes heat from a centralised source to commercial or residential buildings in Bournemouth.
