A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work

The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. 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
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But it is more energy efficient.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like 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 ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
