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 makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
The savings from Air Source Heat Pumps is close to that of 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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But it is more energy efficient.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold 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. So, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently.
