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. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house 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. When you compare heat pumps to electric resistance heaters, you are looking at savings of about £400 each year.
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. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. 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 require digging the land. So, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.
