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 system increases the temperature from the heat extracted outside. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. 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?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of ground source heat pumps. In fact, you will likely save as much as £400 every year, compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Making a choice between these types of heat pumps can be difficult for a few people. You will spend more installing a ground source heat pump. But it is more energy efficient.
Water sources or underground energy can provide heat for ground source heat pumps. So, GSHP are the more efficient and cost-effective alternative. Air source heat pumps are known for higher energy consumption. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. This means that to increase the temperature in your home, ASHP will use up more energy. However, air source heat pumps involve a smaller upfront cost. Air source heat pumps, however, don’t perform as well in the cold. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. 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 equally reliable, but they are installed differently.
