What is the difference between an Air Source Heat Pump & a Ground Source Heat Pump?
Ground source dumps the coolant into the ground, whereas the Air source dumps the coolant into the air. This is why an Air source is less efficient than a ground source; the colder the air temperature is the harder it is to dump the heat.
Why is Under Floor Heating better than radiators?
UFH is better than radiators because its heating the fabric of the building rather than the air. This enables us to heat a house using constant low tempertures rather than instant hot tempertures.
Can I cool with a Air Source Heat Pump?
Yes but it runs the heat pump in reverese so the energy consuption would be the same as an Air conditioning system.
Does it need to be serviced and/or maintained?
Anything mechanical will need maintenace so yes. We offer a maintenance contract once the installation is complete.
