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 system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house 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. When you compare heat pumps to electric resistance heaters, you are looking at savings of about £400 each year.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
It can be a tough choice choosing between ground source and air source heat pumps. Ground source heat pumps are more expensive to install. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. This makes ground source heat pumps the more efficient system. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is because the ground temperature is greater than that of the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. But Ground Source Heat Pumps need land excavation. So, be sure to confirm that you have enough space and the right type of land for the project. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Caterham.
