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 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?
The savings from Air Source Heat Pumps is close 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. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. This means that you may likely spend more to run an air source heat pump compared to ground source heat pumps. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. 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. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Dover.
