A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. 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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. 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 tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. This means that you may likely spend more to run an air source heat pump compared to ground source heat pumps. 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. 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, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
