Air Source Heat Pumps Are Efficient And Inexpensive

Air source heat pumps are in fact, special types of heat pumps that utilize the air from the environment that acts as their source of energy, though other sources can also be utilized including heat sinks that can heat as well as cool an indoor location. Air source heat pumps utilize refrigeration and they also send energy at low temperatures to a refrigerant loop where the refrigerant is compressed to a higher temperature, then this heat is transferred to hot water as well as to the distribution system that sends this heat to an outlet; in summertime however, the heat is actually eliminated in order to influence better cooling.

The majority of air source heat pumps are available as complete systems that can range from as little as a single 4 KW unit to bigger and multiple units that can produce three hundred kilowatts. A few of the salient points about air source heat pumps include lower carbon emissions and less cost of heating. In addition, air source heat pumps utilize only between approximately twenty-five to thirty-five percent of electricity as compared to routine heating systems that in turn, offer a similar amount of heating or cooling.

This implies that using air source heat pumps ensures substantial savings in regards to energy costs, and in addition, such heat pumps are more effective, and in fact are between seventy and ninety-five percent more effective as compared to a gas boiler powered by fossil fuels. What's more, air source heat pumps do not have a lot of moving parts, and therefore require less upkeep and these pumps are also not flammable as is the case with electrically run heat pumps.

When you want to purchase a heat pump system, you have to utilize the right criteria in order to choose the right option. Future performance of your heat pump will completely depend on considering all relevant factors to consider that should be addressed so that it provides enough heat in winter and ample cooling throughout the summer season.Riteway AC\n
