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. 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
Choosing between ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps can be difficult. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of 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. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. To know more about installing a heat pump in Eltham, call 01273 257407 .
