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 temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. You can even use the heat from a heat pump to heat water in the house.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps compared to electric resistance heaters.

With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months.
