A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air source heat pumps take air from the outside and distributes it inside the house. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
The savings from Air Source Heat Pumps is close to that of Ground Source Heat Pumps. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps 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 you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ. Get in touch with us on 01273 257407 to know how you can get a heat pump for your Chickerell property.
