A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air source heat pumps take air from the outside and distributes it inside the house. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
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. 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
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
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 as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. But they don’t work as well during the winter 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 require digging the land. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently. Get in touch with us on 01273 257407 to know how you can get a heat pump for your Andover property.
