Why Heat Pumps Are a Smart Choice
There are quite a few methods of heating and cooling your home. One of the most efficient and convenient ways is with a heat pump. A heat pump utilizes the outside air to heat your house by absorbing heat from outdoors and transferring it to the interior of your home. For cooling your residence, it pulls hot air from inside your house and transfers it outside. Read on to learn more about heat pumps and why purchasing one is a smart choice.
Heat pumps transfer heat, so they don’t need to expend energy to generate it as is the case with furnaces. Similarly, in warm weather, the heat pump transfers the hot air out of the house. Because of this, you can reduce your energy consumption by as much as 50%.
Because heat pumps can both heat and cool your indoor air, you won’t have to buy two separate units to keep your residence comfortable throughout the year.
Heat pumps use air transfer instead of combustion to heat your home. Without combustion, there are no harmful greenhouse gasses produced during the process as you would expect with a furnace. This translates into a smaller carbon footprint and cleaner air in your home and neighborhood.
Heat pumps generally require much less maintenance than other types of HVAC units. In most cases, you’ll only need to have a professional perform a checkup once or twice a year, depending on how much you use your equipment.
Heat pumps make sense, especially in areas where the temperature doesn’t drop below freezing for long periods of time.
