A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. 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?
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
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
