We love heat pumps! Why? Because they’re super efficient, highly effective, and have the ability to provide year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch (but, more on that later!) Honestly, we can’t think of many reasons why homeowners shouldn’t be as enthusiastic about heat pumps as we are!
Okay, okay, we’ll try and contain our excitement a bit more… but seriously, we want to tell you all about the benefits of installing a heat pump in your home, so below, we have listed a few of them for you. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more.
Wait, What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump works much like a standard air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what sets the heat pump apart from a standard AC is the reversing valve, which is used to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system. Why? Because doing so allows for home heating in addition to cooling. That’s right: with just one system, you can both heat and cool your home! Pretty neat, huh?
What are the Benefits?
There are plenty of benefits of installing a heat pump in your home, including:
Heat pumps are one of the most efficient home heating and cooling systems on the market today. This is because they do not generate their own heat, but rather move it from one place to another. Additionally, they operate on much less power than other systems. When you make the switch to a heat pump, you are sure to see lower utility bills.
Installing a heat pump grants you year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch, so no matter the temperature outside, you are sure to stay nice and comfortable inside. Plus, heat pumps come in both ducted and ductless models, so no matter the size and layout of your home, we will be able to match you with a heat pump that best suits your space.
Cost & Convenience
Why worry about the cost of maintaining two different HVAC systems? A heat pump eliminates the need to own both a heater and an air conditioner, reducing the frequency of repair calls and untimely replacements.
