Like AC units or heaters, heat pumps are yet another way to let you control your home’s temperature. However, unlike AC units or heaters, heat pumps don’t directly change the temperature of your home’s air. Instead, it regulates your home’s temperature by moving warmer air into cold areas. Getting a heat pump installation for your Springfield home can do you plenty of good, and we can give you some good reasons to consider one.
Here are five reasons to consider a heat pump installation:
Combined heating and cooling
Most homes require two different systems to keep their homes comfortable; one for heating and another for cooling. However, a heat pump, like an HVAC system, is capable of both heating and cooling your home, all in one convenient package.
Compared to similar heating and cooling options, such as gas furnaces, heat pumps are very energy efficient. As well as using electricity, which is cleaner than gas or oil, heat pumps are very efficient at using it. Heat pumps work their best when there’s little difference between the source temperature and the supply temperature.
No fuel storage required
Depending on what heating or cooling system you use, you may have a stockpile of fuel for it. Some of the more common fuels you’ll see include propane and oil. Having one of those systems means always needing a stockpile of fuel in your home. With a heat pump, you don’t have to worry about how much fuel you have. The heat pump runs on electricity and will always run as long as it has electricity. Pairing up your heat pump with a generator is a great way to stay warm during a power outage.
Just like with any appliance, heat pumps won’t last forever, no matter how good you are with scheduling annual maintenance. However, they can still last a good while if you’re diligent about maintenance. The average well-kept heat pump can last fourteen or fifteen years.
Fewer carbon emissions
Heat pumps are well-known for being highly energy efficient. Because of this, using one can help you reduce your carbon footprint. A good example comes from water source heat pumps, which transfer heat to/from a water source. It’s possible for these models to reduce your energy usage by 30-60%.
