A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air source heat pumps take air from the outside and distributes it inside the house. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. In fact, you will likely save as much as £400 every year, 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. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. 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. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently.
