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 system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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. 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. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. 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 very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
