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 increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. 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?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when compared to electric resistance heaters.
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. But it is more energy efficient.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. 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 to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your Cheshunt property, call 01273 257407 .
