A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps

The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.

Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. 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 Charlbury, call 01273 257407 .
