A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
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. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. 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 very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. 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. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently.
