A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The system regulates the temperature of the heat. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when compared to electric resistance heaters.
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. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently. To know more about installing a heat pump in Brentford, call 01273 257407 .
