As we move into the fall, you’ll start to think about heating your home. This may be the year when you replace your current central heating system with a new one. If this is the case, you may be considering a heat pump in Colorado Springs, CO. Heat pumps handle the job of both heating and cooling a house, making them a good option if you’re looking at replacing an electric furnace and an air conditioning system.
But you may have heard the heat pumps aren’t up to handling extremely cold temperatures like the ones we get here in Colorado Springs. A heat pump in heating mode draws heat from outdoors and moves it indoors, and so conventional wisdom says a heat pump can only work efficiently in milder cold climates. Is this true? Is a heat pump just not viable in our weather?
