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 system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
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. 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
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. 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. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. This means that you may likely spend more to run an air source heat pump compared to ground source heat pumps. 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, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. To know more about installing a heat pump in Baldock, call 01273 257407 .

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Baldock
District heating can also refer to tele-heating or heat networks. District heating moves heat from one central source to commercial and residential buildings in Baldock.
This is a space saving technique that can heat many buildings from one source. Communal heating involves heat transfer to many dwellings. This system is great for a small number of buildings located close together.
Heat pumps work well for district or communal heating because they save costs. The cost can be shared by all the connected buildings, reducing installation cost per house.
