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 unit will increase the temperature of the heat before releasing it inside. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. 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. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps 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. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
