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 increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated water.
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. 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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. 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 Wimborne-Minster property.
