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. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. 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. 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. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But it is more energy efficient.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. This means that you may likely spend more to run an air source heat pump compared to ground source heat pumps. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. 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. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Aldershot.
