Benefits of a Heat Pump

For climates with moderate heating needs, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to a furnace. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house — and because they move heat rather than generate it, can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating appliances. If you’re considering having a heat pump installed, here are some ways they can be beneficial to your home:

The provide warmth and can be used for cooling: As we mentioned, one of the biggest benefits of installing a heat pump is it’s ability to provide warmth. But did you know that it can also be put in reverse cycle and bring a cooling relief during the warmer weather?

They are convenient: A heat pump enables you to increase or decrease the temperature of your room, or switch from heating to cooling in the push of a button. Once the room reaches your preferred temperature, the heat pump maintains the temperature for as long as you require it to.

The improve air quality: Since heat pumps don’t create smoke or add fumes to the air, they help the air around you and are also safe to have in your home. When your heat pump circulates the air in your room, the filters also clean and purify the air, removing dust, dirt and mold spores.

They are energy efficient: Heat pumps are the most cost-effective form of heating. In fact, the energy savings can return the initial investment several times during the heat pump’s life. This will not only save energy, but will reduce your utility bills as well.

The popularity of heat pumps has risen dramatically over the past few years, due to their high efficiency ratings, in addition to their practical, convenient and environmentally friendly benefits that owning one can bring.
