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 achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. 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 and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. In fact, you will likely save as much as £400 every year, compared to electric resistance heaters.
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. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. 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.
