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 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.
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
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. But you gain greater energy efficiency.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Unfortunately, these systems lose performance during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. 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, however, they have different installation requirements.

District heating can also refer to tele-heating or heat networks. District heating moves heat from one central source to commercial and residential buildings in Epsom.
District heating not only heats multiple buildings from one source, it also saves space. Communal heating on the other hand involves heating a number of homes. Communal heating is suitable for a small number of buildings that share the same heat source.
