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 fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.

How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?

Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of ground source heat pumps. 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

Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.

Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. So, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
