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 increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. 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 between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if 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. Get in touch with us on 01273 257407 to know how you can get a heat pump for your Broadstairs property.
