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 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. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. 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
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. 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. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
