Installing an Air Source Heat Pump has Multiple Benefits for Homeowners
Some are more obvious than others. Here are four benefits that you may not have considered.
- Your carbon footprint is likely to lower
Heat pumps don’t burn anything to generate heat. They extract heat from the air to heat a home or office building, and can be reversed to cool a building. Therefore, there aren’t any carbon emissions, other than the small amount of energy to run the compressor.
Teamed with other behaviours that are changing, such as working from home and reducing the number of flights we take, the carbon footprints of those living with an air source heat pump are likely to be even lower.
- A heat pump will help prevent condensation
As the temperatures in your home start to dip, do you have condensation on your windows? It’s a horrible feeling knowing that the moisture builds up as you sleep. During the winter months the warm air that the heat pump circulates also reduces the amount of condensation in your home.
- Heat pumps help improve your home’s air quality
Heat pumps have filters that clean and purify the air removing dust particles in your home. Annual maintenance checks ensure that the filters remain clean making it an excellent solution for those suffering from allergies.
- And finally, they will save you money
Annual fuel bills are likely to reduce substantially due to the energy efficiency ratings of Air Source Heat Pumps. They can also add value to your property. The initial installation costs need to be allocated across the time you intend living in your current home. Installing a Heat Pump in your ‘forever home’ could be a very shrewd investment.
All in all, Air Source Heat Pumps are a great investment for your home. Not only are heat pumps incredibly energy-efficient and reliable; they also heat (and cool) your home and improve the quality of the air you and your family breathe.
