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. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.

Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. 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 tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But it is more energy efficient.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. So, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
