A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The system regulates the temperature of the heat. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. 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?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with ground source heat pumps. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. But it is more energy efficient.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. 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. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently.
