A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house 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 tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. 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 temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. 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 Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
