A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps circulate air inside the house after extracting it from the outside. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of 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. 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
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. So, make sure 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. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Wickford.
