A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The system regulates the temperature of the heat. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
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. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. 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 means that ground source pumps work better and save more. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. 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. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
