A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The system regulates the temperature of the heat. 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.

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. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. So, make sure your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Thame.
