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 increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. 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?
The savings from Air Source Heat Pumps is close 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
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. So, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Sandwich
District heating can also refer to tele-heating or heat networks. In Sandwich, 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. When a smaller number of homes is heating from a source, it is known as communal heating. Communal heating is suitable for a small number of buildings that share the same heat source.
