A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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?
You get to enjoy almost as much savings with air source heat pumps, as you would with ground source heat pumps. 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 difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. 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 ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary.
