Heat Pumps Are Pretty Awesome! Here’s Why

We can’t say it enough: heat pumps are just so awesome—and for a number of reasons. They’re efficient, effective, and [SPOILERS] can provide year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch! (Don’t worry, we’ll touch more on that later.) We can’t think of many reasons why you wouldn’t want one of these systems in your home.

We think that that there are plenty of benefits of installing a heat pump, and we’ve listed some of them. All you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more. And remember, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about making the switch.

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 reverses the direction the refrigerant flows through the system. 

Why?

Because reversing the flow of refrigerant allows the heat pump to provide home heating in addition to cooling! That’s right: with just one system, you’ll can both heat and cool your home! When refrigerant runs a different direction, the coils swap jobs. Now the outdoor coil absorbs heat, and the indoor coil releases heat—the AC have turned from a cooling system to a heating system.

What Are the Benefits?

When you have a heat pump installed in your home, you’ll be able to take advantage of several benefits, including:

Versatility

With just the flip of a switch, you’ll enjoy year-round comfort, making the heat pump one of the most versatile home comfort systems on the market. Plus, heat pumps come in both ducted and ductless models, so no matter what your needs are, we can find the right heat pump for you!

Efficiency

Heat pumps are known for high energy efficient. This is because they do not generate their own heat, but rather move it from one place to another. When you install one of these systems in your home, you’ll enjoy lower energy costs and increased savings.

Cost and Convenience

Why worry about the cost of having to maintain both a heater and an air conditioner? With a heat pump, you’ll no longer have to worry about maintaining two different HVAC systems since a heat pump is able to do the job of both. No more worrying about untimely replacements and costly AC repairs in Bullhead City.

Is a Heat Pump Right for You?

There is one way to tell if a heat pump is the right choice for your home: consulting with a professional HVAC technician. Only a professional can tell you if your home is the right candidate for a heat pump and help you select the model that is going to best meet your unique comfort needs.

Yes, plenty of amateurs are willing to make recommendations. But remember, sometimes an attempt to save money can end up costing more in the long run. It is better to call in a pro and get the job done right the first time around.
