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. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
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. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. 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. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
