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 system regulates the temperature of the heat. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
The savings from Air Source Heat Pumps is close to that of Ground Source Heat Pumps. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps 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. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But it is more energy efficient.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. 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 equally reliable, but they are installed differently. Get in touch with us on 01273 257407 to know how you can get a heat pump for your Harwich property.
