A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
ASHP harvests hot air from outside the house and funnels it inside via the indoor units. The temperature of the harvested air is first increased to suit the inside of the house. This is possible as a result of the fluid that comes with the heat pump. Apart from keeping your home warm, heat pumps can also be used to generate heated water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. You can expect to save as much as £400 using heat pumps 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. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But it is 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 as a result of higher underground temperatures 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 become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are as easy to install, just like an air conditioner unit. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. Therefore, confirm that the subsoil if your land is suitable for the project. Both ground source and air source heat pumps are energy efficient, but their installation methods vary. Call 01273 257407 to speak to someone about installing a heat pump in Littlehampton.
