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 increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. You can even use the heat from a heat pump to heat water in the house.
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. 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. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures 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. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
