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. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
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. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when 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. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
