A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. 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. 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 a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of 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. 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 Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. 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 London
District heating can also refer to tele-heating or heat networks. District heating serves heat to buildings in London from one central location. District heating saves space and can heat communal buildings from a single source. Communal heating involves heating a smaller number of buildings from one source. This system is great for a small number of buildings located close together.
Heat pumps work well for district or communal heating because they save costs. The cost can be shared by all the connected buildings, reducing installation cost per house.
