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 regulates the temperature of the heat. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
