A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air source heat pumps take air from the outside and distributes it inside the house. The unit will increase the temperature of the heat before releasing it inside. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. 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
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. However, you will enjoy better energy efficiency.
Ground source heat pumps get their energy from underground and water sources. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. 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. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. ASHPs are less expensive upfront and will tend to provide a very good return on your investment. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. 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. To know more about installing a heat pump in Ashford, call 01273 257407 .
