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 system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. You will have to excavate the earth 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.
