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. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. 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?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. 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
It can be a tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. However, you will enjoy better 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 will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently.
