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. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated 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. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. But it is more energy efficient.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. However, they tend to lose efficiency 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, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
