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 system regulates the temperature of the heat. 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?
The savings from Air Source Heat Pumps is close to that of Ground Source Heat Pumps. When you compare heat pumps to electric resistance heaters, you are looking at savings of about £400 each year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. 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. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
