Air Source Heat Pump Installation options
Install Air To Water Heat pumps?
homes have a mains gas feed in which case a general gas boiler such as a
condensate boiler or Combi is usually the easiest and cheapest way of
heating and providing hot water for your building. Where a property has
no mains gas feed or is using oil, bottled gas, no room for ground
source or even direct electric heating then air to water heat pumps
comes into its own.
Much Money Will It Save?
a air to water heat pump is up to 3 times more efficient than using
direct electricity heating, twice as efficient than mains gas and non
comparable with bottled gas and oil. The indicial cost of air to water
systems can be more expensive but the return on investment is fast
because of its efficiency.
Units Are The Best ASHP On The Market
are three main manufactures in the market for air source heat pumps for
homes. The ultimate system is from world air conditioning and heat pump
manufacture Daikin, the Daikin Altherma which is superior in control and
heating efficiency is without doubt the install and forget system. With
solar collector add-on facility and large thermal store capacity these
units are the most expensive but comprehensive in every way. The second
player is Mitsubishi Electric Ecodan. These are popular for commercial
buildings and offer a reliability and efficiency that is comparable with
Daikin Altherma. The Ecodan is a product that needs to be installed by a
registered dealer so has become a bespoke product that most DIY home
developers have not taken up. The best value system is the Panasonic
Aquarea which comes in a mono-block or split format. The Aquarea is by
far the cheapest and offers great efficiency and control.
