A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. This is achieved by compressing the fluids inside the heat pump system. With this heat, you can heat hot water and make your house warm.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This means that ground source pumps work better and save more. Air source heat pumps require more energy to work. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner. But Ground Source Heat Pumps require digging the land. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Air source heat pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps are both energy-efficient, but the installation process is different.
