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 makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. 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?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would 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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. 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. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
