A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. 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. 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 tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. 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. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
