A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The system regulates the temperature of the heat. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. 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. 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 a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. 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. 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. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Chorleywood.
