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. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. You can use this to heat up water, while keeping your interior warm.
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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air Source Heat Pumps consume more energy than Ground Source Heat Pumps. This is due to the fact the underground temperatures are greater. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. 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. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
