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 achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. 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 will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. 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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
