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. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. In fact, you will likely save as much as £400 every year, 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. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or 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 caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder 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.
