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 unit will increase the temperature of the heat before releasing it inside. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of ground source heat pumps. When you compare heat pumps to electric resistance heaters, you are looking at savings of about £400 each 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. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you gain greater 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. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. 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. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your Portsmouth property, call 01273 257407 .
