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. It achieves this by compressing the fluid that comes with heat pump units. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps will also result in significant savings, just like with ground source heat pumps. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. 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. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. This means that you may likely spend more to run an air source heat pump compared to ground source heat pumps. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are very easy to install and can be as simple as putting up an air conditioner. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Oxfordshire
When you hear district heating, it means heat networks or tele-heating. District heating moves heat from one central source to commercial and residential buildings in Oxfordshire. District heating not only heats multiple buildings from one source, it also saves space. 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 are ideal for communal and district heating because of their cost effectiveness. Also, many units of occupation can split the cost of installation among themselves.
