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. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. 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. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per 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. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But it is more energy efficient.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. 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 ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
