A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps

Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps are known for higher 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. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
