A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. 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. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. But it is more energy efficient.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. 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 because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently. To know more about installing a heat pump in Hythe, call 01273 257407 .

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Hythe
When you talk about district heating, you are talking about tele-heating or heat networks. District heating serves heat to buildings in Hythe from one central location.
District heating not only saves space, it also allows multiple buildings to be heated from a single point. Communal heating is ideal for heating a smaller number of homes. This system is great for a small number of buildings located close together.
Heat pumps make it possible to carry out communal or district heating in a cost-effective manner. The cost can be shared by all the connected buildings, reducing installation cost per house.
