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. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with ground source heat pumps. When you compare heat pumps to electric resistance heaters, you are looking at savings of about £400 each year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But you will need to excavate the land 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 both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
