A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps circulate air inside the house after extracting it from the outside. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with ground source heat pumps. 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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. This means that you may likely spend more to run an air source heat pump compared to ground source heat pumps. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. But they don’t work as well during the winter 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 require digging the land. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your Brent property, call 01273 257407 .
