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 regulates the temperature of the heat. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like 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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. This means that you may likely spend more to run an air source heat pump compared to ground source heat pumps. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Chelmsford.
