Which is Better: A Furnace or a Heat Pump?

questioned-and-answers

Okay, we really can’t tell you which is better, because, in truth, these systems are both equally great! However, what we can do is help you decide between the two by telling you the benefits of each, which is exactly what we’ve done for you below!

Furnaces and heat pumps each come with their own unique benefits, and it’s up to you to decide which sounds better. So, what are you waiting for? All you have to do is keep reading to find out more (and of course, remember to call our team when you need an expert HVAC contractor in Bullhead City.)

Let’s Talk a Little Bit About Furnaces

Furnaces are by far the most popular home heating systems on the market today. Why? Because they’re efficient, effective, and reliable — in fact, these forced-air systems are capable of lasting for upwards of 15 years!

Furnaces come in two different models:

  • Gas Furnaces: Natural gas is a widely available, clean-burning, and energy efficient fuel source, so we recommend one of these systems if your home has access to natural gas lines.
  • Electric Furnaces: Electric furnaces are definitely super-efficient. Electricity can be rather expensive but, if you live in an area where electricity is relatively cheap, then you might want to consider this type of system.

Installing a furnace is a great way to keep you and your family warm and toasty all winter long!

How About Heat Pumps?

Heat pumps work much like a traditional 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 air conditioning unit is the reversing valve, which reverses the direction the refrigerant flows through the system. This allows for home heating in addition to cooling!

That’s right: with just one system you’ll be able to heat and cool your home! And not only that, but these systems are also super efficient, highly effective, and come in both ducted and ductless models, so no matter how much space you have, you’ll be able to find a system suited for you!

Whatever You Choose, Have a Professional Install It!

When you hire a professional for your installation services, you can be sure that your system is going to work as efficiently and as effectively as possible, for as long as possible. Only a certified HVAC pro has the tools, training, and expertise to accurately asses your home, select the best system for it, and install that system accordingly.

Trust us, you don’t want to hire just any ‘handyman’ for the job, as sometimes an attempt to save money could end up costing you much, much more in the long run. Remember, when it comes to your comfort and your budget, you don’t want to take any risks. Always rely on a trained HVAC technician to get the job done right.
