There is no fuel storage with heat pumps. You don’t take up the space required for a furnace when you have a heat pump installed. You can install most heat pumps without planning permission. Heat pumps are the main heat sources of the future. Common heating systems will no longer be in vogue. To know more about installing a heat pump in Kenton, call 01273 257407 .

A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. 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?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would 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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But you gain greater 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 caused by higher temperatures underground than 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. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. 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 equally reliable, but they are installed differently. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your Kenton property, call 01273 257407 .

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Kenton
When you hear district heating, it means heat networks or tele-heating. From just one location in Kenton, district heating can heat multiple buildings.

When it comes to cost effective district or communal heating, heat pumps are ideal. In fact, many buildings can come together to fund the installation cost.
