A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. 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. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior 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. 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. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than 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. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. But you will need to excavate the land 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 equally reliable, but they are installed differently. To know more about installing a heat pump in Northampton, call 01273 257407 .

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Northampton
District heating is another name for heat networks or tele-heating. From just one location in Northampton, district heating can heat multiple buildings.
This system saves space while heating multiple buildings from a central source. Communal heating involves heating a smaller number of buildings from one source. Communal heating works best when dwellings are located close to one another.
Heat pumps work well for district or communal heating because they save costs. The cost can be shared by all the connected buildings, reducing installation cost per house.
