A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps circulate air inside the house after extracting it from the outside. 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. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
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. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
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. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
