A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air source heat pumps take air from the outside and distributes it inside the house. The system regulates the temperature of the heat. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. You can even use the heat from a heat pump to heat water in the house.
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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. 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.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. 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. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a 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. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Greenwich
District heating is also referred to as tele-heating or heat networks. District heating serves heat to buildings in Greenwich from one central location.
