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 regulates the temperature of the heat. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. 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. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
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. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
