A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. 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?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Winchester.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Winchester
When you hear district heating, it means heat networks or tele-heating. District heating distributes heat from a centralised source to commercial or residential buildings in Winchester.
District heating not only saves space, it also allows multiple buildings to be heated from a single point. Communal heating involves heat transfer to many dwellings. Communal heating is ideal for flats and clusters of buildings that use the same heat source.
Heat pumps are ideal for communal and district heating because of their cost effectiveness. The cost can be shared by all the connected buildings, reducing installation cost per house.
