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 achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.
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. 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. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
