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. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. 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?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with ground source heat pumps. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps 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. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures 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 become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Royston
District heating is another name for heat networks or tele-heating. From just one location in Royston, district heating can heat multiple buildings.
This is a space saving technique that can heat many buildings from one source. Communal heating on the other hand involves heating a number of homes. Communal heating is ideal for flats and clusters of buildings that use the same heat source.
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.
