When you think of air conditioning in the winter, you don’t necessarily equate that with sound advice for anyone in Bucks County. With heat pumps, think of this as “reverse air conditioning”. It brings in warm energy from the outside and transfers it to instant heat for comfortable and efficient living.
A heat pump, as part of a central heating and cooling system, uses the outside air to both heat a home in winter and cool it in summer. Even during the coldest nights, there is heat energy present. The heat pump extracts this outside heat and transfers it inside. In the summer, the opposite happens bringing in cool air and taking out the warmth.
But is this system beneficial to your family’s home this winter? The following benefits will make you think twice and reconsider what heat pumps can provide.
4 Essential Benefits of Heat Pumps
- Climate Control: You are in control with the heat levels when it comes to heat pumps as a source of warmth. You have the ability to easily control and maintain your climate to your own levels.
- Energy Efficiency: Heat pumps are currently the most cost-effective form of heating using electricity. A heat pump is one of the cheapest methods to heat a home. Cheaper than conventional electric furnaces and natural gas powered boilers.
- Space Saving: With no need for burners or a combustion site, heat pumps do not take up valuable space. There is also no need to sit near the unit as it distributes evenly to all rooms.
- Safe for Families and the Environment: As there are no flames or hot surfaces, children and pets are free from the hazards other heat sources have. As the heat pump does not burn anything at the heat energy source, there are no additional carbon emissions other then the small amount of electricity required to run the compressor.
On top of these terrific benefits, the added plus is that both your air conditioner and heat pump run on the same device. This streamlined approach will save you money and repairs in the future. When considering your heating options this winter, take for a moment to learn more about heat pumps.
