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 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 use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
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 difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
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 tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. 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. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. 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.
