A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. You can even use the heat from a heat pump to heat water in the house.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with ground source heat pumps. 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. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Basildon.
