Air Source Heat Pump Air Conditioning
Your regular AC unit has been failing and you are wondering whether you should invest in an air source heat pump. Many people, especially the older generation, think that the only way they can run an air conditioner is through electricity, oil or gas and so are sceptical when it comes to air source heat pumps. You shouldn’t be – these air conditioning systems come with several unbeatable benefits.
The first is that you will be able to reduce your utility bills substantially. An air source heat pump works by harvesting warm or cold air around the house depending on the weather – in the winter it harvests warm air and in the summer hot air – and pumping it back into the home. You will need a little electricity to run the system but nothing compared to how much you would use if your whole AC system was running on the conventional grid. In fact, if you have been keen to reduce your carbon footprint this is is a great way to do it. If you don’t want your air source heat pump hooked up on the electricity grid you can power it using power or solar.
The other benefit of an air source heat pump is that you can heat your home or office in extremely cold conditions. These systems work in temperatures as low as -20C. True, they usually require bigger radiators, but this is a small cost compared to the benefits that you reap. These pumps are able to heat water which can stay hot for long periods of time.
