An Air Source Heat Pump is a system which transfers heat from outside to inside a building, or from inside to outside a building. Where Air Ventilation is concerned, Air source heat pumps are an integral part of the ventilation system. Air Source Heat Pump System is a dual purpose heat pump.
Modern technology is reaching its heights and we are still stuck on the Air Conditioning system. Air Source Heat Pump System is the improved form of ventilation systems with dual technology of adjusting to the hot as well as cold temperature.
When the temperature rises outside, the system acts as Air conditioner and transfers the heat of inside to outside. When the temperature drops outside, the system transfers outside heat to inside.
Cost of Pump:
Air source heat pump prices for installation ranges from $4000 to approximately $7000 varying according to the size of home and type of heat pump. Since a geothermal heat pump requires underground installation, therefore the cost will be higher than installation of other air source pumps.
Air Source Heat Pump prices ranges vary depending on the supplier of the system. However, the price of the system is worth the features it provides. Saving the long term cost, and other costs this system is a onetime investment which will come to maturity later. PANASONIC is providing the heat pump in the range of $1279-$1427 while AMANA is providing the system in $500-$1000 range.
Due to replacement of electrical heating in KW, fuel expenses and carbon emission will lower down. The system can heat your water as well as your home and can be maintained with minimal maintenance. It is much easier to install than a ground source heat pump.
According to Cambridge Renewable Energy Centre, these pumps are the single largest contribution that householders can make towards the reduction of carbon emission, which is beneficial for environmental health. The normal heating capacity of Air source heat pumps ranges between 5 to 10 kW with the input power of 1 to 2.5 kW.v
