A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The unit will increase the temperature of the heat before releasing it inside. 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?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of 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. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But it is more energy efficient.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than 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. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Margate
District heating can also refer to tele-heating or heat networks. District heating moves heat from one central source to commercial and residential buildings in Margate.
