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 temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. 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. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. 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. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
