5 heat pump benefits for your home
Here are five of the most significant heat pump benefits that will make you seriously consider replacing your old HVAC with one.
Heat pumps offer both cooling and heating for your home
Most people think that heat pumps only heat homes. After all, “heat” is in the name! However, the fact is that heat pumps can both heat and cool the home. During the summer, it functions like an air conditioner, expelling warm air from inside the house to the outside of the home, cooling the room. Heat pumps are every bit as effective as your standard air conditioner!
During cooler months, the heat pump is capable of warming the room. However, it does not heat up the room by converting electricity or gas into heat. Instead, the device is able to heat up the room by absorbing heat from the outside air, and then circulating the heated air throughout the room.
Heat pumps are very energy-efficient
These systems use far less energy than traditional HVAC systems. You can benefit from long-term cost savings by replacing both your heating and cooling systems with a single heat pump. They are a more energy-efficient alternative to oil and gas heating systems.
When the heat pumps are properly installed and regularly maintained by the professionals at Air Control, they can provide reasonably high efficiencies, close to 300 percent! Installing this system will result in greatly reduced utility bills and a significantly reduced the carbon footprint on the environment.
Heat pumps offer consistent heating and cooling
Heat pumps provide uniform heating and cooling inside the home. Unlike other systems, you will not experience uneven temperature inside the house. They create a more comfortable environment as compared to traditional HVAC systems.
Lower maintenance costs
Another great benefit of heat pumps is that they experience less wear-and-tear compared to combustion heating systems. When serviced regularly, heat pumps perform efficiently without any problems. As a result, you will be able to save a lot of cost and inconvenience in the long run.
Heat pumps generally last longer as compared to traditional furnaces and heating systems. The lifespan of a traditional heating system is about 12-15 years, while a heat pump typically lasts 15-20 years.
