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 unit will increase the temperature of the heat before releasing it inside. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. In fact, you will likely save as much as £400 every year, compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
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 tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
