5 Benefits of a Heat Pump Installation
Heat pumps are another method of heating or cooling your house, like an air conditioner or furnace. However, it doesn’t heat or cool the air in your house like a traditional system. Instead, it regulates your home’s temperature by moving heat from warmer areas to cooler areas. Getting a heat pump installation from North Shore Home Energy will give you a great alternative from typical heating and cooling options. Read our list below to see why getting a heat pump might be an option for you!
Here are five reasons you should consider a heat pump installation:
No fuel storage necessary
Various heating and cooling systems use different types of fuel, such as oil, propane, or other alternative fuel. Because of this, you’ll always have to keep a supply in your house. With a heat pump, you don’t have to worry about how much fuel you have. Heat pumps use nothing but electricity, and can always operate as long as they have power.
If you’re diligent about keeping them in good condition, heat pumps can last a long time. On average, heat pumps can last 14 to 15 years if cared for properly. Like many appliances, it’s a good idea to get your heat pump inspected annually and perform maintenance. If you take care of your heat pump, it will take care of you.
Heating and cooling combined
If you want to keep your home temperate, you’ll generally need to buy and manage two different systems. However, like a combined HVAC system, a heat pump can pull double duty by keeping your home warm during the winter and cool during the summer.
Fewer carbon emissions
Heat pumps have a reputation for their high energy efficiency. Because of this, they’re likely to reduce your carbon footprint. For instance, water source heat pumps, which move heat to/from a water source, can reduce your energy usage by 30-60%.
Heat pumps are very energy efficient when compared to similar options like gas furnaces. Not only do heat pumps run on electricity, which is cleaner than gas or oil, but they are also very efficient at using it to move heat. As a rule of thumb, heat pumps operate best when the difference between the source and supply temperatures is very little.
