A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps circulate air inside the house after extracting it from the outside. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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. 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
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. 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. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. 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 Oxford, call 01273 257407 .
