What is a Heat Pump?

When you think of ways to keep your home comfortable, you probably think of an air conditioner for warmer months and a furnace for the colder ones. But what if we told you that there’s another system that can help keep you comfortable and even save you money on your energy bill? Enter heat pumps.

What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is a home comfort system that both cools and heats air that enters your home, through the transfer of energy. When it’s cold outside, the heat pump pulls warm air into your home, and when its hot outside, it pulls warm air out of your home.

Benefits of a Heat Pump

Lower Energy Usage

Unlike other heating and cooling systems that need to create warm or cool air, heat pumps work by transferring heat that already exists, which means they use less energy than traditional systems do. They typically have higher energy efficiency ratings that other systems too.

Lower Utility Bills

Since they use less energy to operate and keep your home comfortable, heat pumps can help lower your utility bills. Beyond that, they use electricity as a power source, rather than gas or oil, which can help you save on fuel costs. This is especially true for areas where electricity costs less than gas.

Greener Living

When a system uses less power/fuel and energy to operate, that means it uses fewer resources and puts less of a strain on our environment. Heat pumps can help you make your home a bit greener and environmentally-friendly.
