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. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. 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?
The savings from Air Source Heat Pumps is close 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
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. 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 both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Whitchurch

This is a space saving technique that can heat many buildings from one source. Communal heating on the other hand involves heating a number of homes. Communal heating is suitable for a small number of buildings that share the same heat source.
Heat pumps are popular with district and communal heating because they save energy. This way, multiple houses can share the cost of installation and operation.
