A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air source heat pumps take air from the outside and distributes it inside the house. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of 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?
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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. However, it is more expensive to install a ground source heat pump. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures 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. But they don’t work as well during the winter 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. 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 Bicester, call 01273 257407 .
