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. 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. 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
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. But they don’t work as well during the winter 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. 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. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Kensington-and-Chelsea.
