Do you live in an area with a moderate temperature year round? Are you looking for a way to cut costs with heating and cooling in your home? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you may want to consider a heat pump installation. Here’s how it can benefit you:
How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Electricity! Essentially, heat pumps can push heat from a cool space to a warmer place. This way, they are able to make cool spaces cooler, and warm spaces even warmer. Moving heat instead of generating it can provide the same heating and cooling at a fraction of the cost.
Immediate Benefits of a Heat Pump Installation
Soon after having a heat pump installed in your home, you will start to notice the following benefits:
- Low Running Costs: Heat pumps are cheaper to run in comparison to those who run on combustion. This will save you money on your utility bills!
- Low Maintenance: Heat pumps require far less maintenance in comparison to combustion heating systems. Approximately once a year certain details of the system have to be checked, which could easily be accomplished by yourself. If you are a bit hesitant, consider hiring a professional to check on the system.
- Safety: Heat pumps are far less likely to cause problems than other heating systems, giving you peace of mind knowing that your home is safe.
- Reduced Carbon Emissions: Heat pump systems reduce your carbon emissions and it has an efficient conversion rate of energy to heat. For example, water source heat pumps reach reasonably high efficiencies. They heavily rely on electricity to operate, implying that they will never be entirely carbon neutral. However, since heat pumps are electric, they represent a perfect fit for solar applications. Coupled together with solar panels, heat pumps could lead to zero net energy.
- Cooling: During warmer months of the years, heat pumps are able to reverse the flow process. Because of this, the heat pump can serve a similar function to an air conditioner. Air to air heat pumps can conveniently be switched to cooling mode during the summers.
- Durability: The lifespan of heat pumps is relatively long in comparison to other systems. In most cases, the average lifespan of a heat pump is somewhere around 14-15 years.
