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 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. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
