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 makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like 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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. 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. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like 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.
