A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like with 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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. You will spend more installing 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 means that ground source pumps work better and save more. 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. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ. To know more about installing a heat pump in Swanage, call 01273 257407 .
