A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. 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.
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. 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
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. But it is more energy efficient.
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 are known for higher energy consumption. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
