Air-to-air heat pumps are very efficient at converting energy to heat and are a medium to fast source of heat. A heat pump has the ability to provide heating AND cooling. Heat pumps are an energy-efficient and cost-effective alternative to furnaces that a growing number of homeowners are beginning to utilize. Unlike furnaces and other traditional heaters, heat pumps do not rely on electricity or natural gas to generate heat. Instead, they work by moving existing heat from one place to another—for example, moving heat outside when you want to cool your house, and moving heat inside when you need to warm your house. There are a number of important advantages to using a heat pump in your home.
Heat Pumps Save energy
For climates with moderate heating and cooling needs, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. Since heat pumps don’t require any energy expenditure to warm your home, they are one of the most efficient and green-friendly heating methods available. According to the U. S. Department of Energy, heat pumps require only one-fourth of the energy that traditional heating systems require in order to provide the corresponding amount of heating. Not only can using heat pumps help you keep your energy expenses—and utility costs—down, but they are also good for the environment.
Heat Pumps Provide Uniform Heating
An air source heat pump uses advanced technology and the refrigeration cycle to heat and cool your home. This allows a heat pump to provide year-round indoor comfort – no matter what the season is. If you’ve ever been frustrated by a heating system that heats your home unevenly, leaving some rooms warm and others chilly, a heat pump is a great solution. Instead of periodically filling your home with hot air, a heat pump simply provides you with an even level of warmth or cool all day long. When you invest in a heat pump, you can always depend on a cozy and comfortable household to come home to.
Heat Pumps Don’t Dry Out Your Air
One issue many homeowners have with traditional heating systems is that they can make indoor air extremely dry, leading to dry skin and irritated sinuses. This usually results in the need for purchasing a humidifier. Heat Pump systems are much cheaper to use than those fueled by natural gas and do not generate dry air when heating. This spares you from having to use a humidifier to combat the dry air as is the case with furnaces. The pump also provides uniform heating for the home. You will not experience frequent temperature fluctuations, as associated with other systems. Electric pumps are also quiet and comfortable to use. The air compressor is usually placed outside the building and helps to keep noise levels low. Heat pumps do not affect the moisture content of your air, so they don’t reduce the comfort level of your home.
