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 temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of 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. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. 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 as a result of higher underground temperatures 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. 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. So, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Both types of heat pumps are reliable, but installation process differ.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Wantage
When you talk about district heating, you are talking about tele-heating or heat networks. In Wantage, you can use district heating to heat houses from a single location.
District heating not only heats multiple buildings from one source, it also saves space. When a smaller number of homes is heating from a source, it is known as communal heating. Communal heating is suitable for a small number of buildings that share the same heat source.
