A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated water.
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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But it is more energy efficient.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is caused by higher temperatures underground 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. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. 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. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. To know more about installing a heat pump in Didcot, call 01273 257407 .
