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 increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when 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. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
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 require more energy to work. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. 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 as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
