A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. And compared to electric resistance heaters, you’ll save somewhere above £400 per year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a difficult decision choosing between Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pump. 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. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. You will have to excavate the earth before you can install a ground source heat pump. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently.

Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Witney
When you hear district heating, it means heat networks or tele-heating. In Witney, you can use district heating to heat houses from a single location.
This is a space saving technique that can heat many buildings from one source. Communal heating on the other hand involves heating a number of homes. Communal heating is ideal for flats and clusters of buildings that use the same heat source.
Heat pumps work well for district or communal heating because they save costs. Plus, multiple homes can share the cost of installation among themselves.
