Air Source Heat Pumps: Cost Effective Technology
Air Source Heat pumps are excellent technologies to heat and cool homes and offices. They maintain the temperatures in our living and working places when the outside temperatures are too low. You can even use ASHP for heating water and any other household requirement. Solar power/ solar energy can be used with air source heat pumps for sumptuous efficiency.
Heat is obtained from the outside air and passed through special units. Heat exchanger and compressor are used to convert the air into fine-grade heat. Air Source Heat pumps are renewable and effective ways to heat homes.
Benefits of Air Source Heat Pumps:
- They can be used for air conditioning during summers and all heating requirements in winters.
- Marginal running cost in contrast to traditional electrical resistance heaters.
- ASHPs consume only 25-33% electricity in comparison to standard resistance heaters thereby cutting off the electricity charges.
- ASHPs consume electricity and do not require any fuel or gas. Hence there are no worries to obtain gas or fuel.
- No maintenance requirements.
You can heat water at temperatures of 55⁰C up to a maximum of 80⁰C. ASHPs provide high efficiency heat pumps up to four times than that of an electric heater consuming the same energy input.
ASHPs have a high level of CO₂ emissions. Yet the launch of Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) technique for Micro generation Certification Scheme (MCS) has proved beneficial. The carbon emissions are reduced significantly. Electricity used to operate the air source heat pumps if generated from renewable resources such as solar, tidal and wind power can reduce the expenses. It is easy to install the air source heat pumps in buildings and homes.
