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 system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. 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. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per 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. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
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 consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. 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. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Maidstone.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Maidstone
District heating is also referred to as tele-heating or heat networks. In Maidstone, you can use district heating to heat houses from a single location.
District heating not only heats multiple buildings from one source, it also saves space. Communal heating involves heating a smaller number of buildings from one source. This system is great for a small number of buildings located close together.
Heat pumps are popular with district and communal heating because they save energy. The cost can be shared by all the connected buildings, reducing installation cost per house.
