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 makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up 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. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
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. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. But they don’t work as well during the winter months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. 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. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. To find out how you can install a heat pump in your Merton property, call 01273 257407 .

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Merton
District heating can also refer to tele-heating or heat networks. District heating distributes heat from a centralised source to commercial or residential buildings in Merton.
District heating not only heats multiple buildings from one source, it also saves space. Communal heating on the other hand involves heating a number of homes. Communal heating is ideal for flats and clusters of buildings that use the same heat source.
Heat pumps work well for district or communal heating because they save costs. Also, many units of occupation can split the cost of installation among themselves.
