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 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?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with ground source heat pumps. When you compare heat pumps to electric resistance heaters, you are looking at savings of about £400 each year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. 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. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. 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. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
