One of the most appealing benefits of a heat pump is that it offers heating and cooling all in one system. This offers you the flexibility to easily switch between heating and cooling when you want to. After all, there are times in the spring and fall when we have cold weather one day and warmer weather another day.
Instead of having a separate air conditioner and heater, a heat pump has a reversing valve that allows the same components to both heat and cool your home more efficiently. It is important to keep in mind that your heat pump may still need to have a small separate furnace installed for heating on the coldest days of winter.
Once temperatures dip below freezing, there is less heat in the air to transfer inside, meaning that your heat pump may need a little help to keep your home as warm as you would like. Even with an added furnace, your heat pump will still be highly energy efficient all year long.
Heat pumps are often quieter than a more traditional, central air conditioning system. Of course, a central air conditioner isn’t loud by any means. However, the sound difference can be very noticeable when you know how quietly a heat pump can operate. In fact, it’s maybe even quieter than the sound of a person breathing.
Plus, a heat pump’s unique way of operating saves you money over other types of heating and air conditioning options. When you pair this unique operating system with a smart thermostat and wise energy use, you can save hundreds of dollars per year on your energy bills.
Heat pumps have an average lifespan of around 15 years. With proper care and annual professional maintenance, your heat pump may last longer. It’s no secret that any type of air conditioner or heater is expensive upfront to install. You want to get the most out of your heat pump installation and our team can offer tips to help after completing the installation.
When it comes to heating, a heat pump is a much safer way to heat your home than other options that use gas for combustion-powered heating. You still have to be careful about electrical connections being secure, but you won’t have to worry about potential gas leaks.
