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 temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar 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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. 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. But they don’t work as well during the winter 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. 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. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your Wivenhoe property, call 01273 257407 .
