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. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. However, GSHP happens to be more energy efficient.
With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. 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 find out how you can install a heat pump in your StainesuponThames property, call 01273 257407 .
