5 Reasons to Choose a Heat Pump for Your Phone
What is a heat pump?
Heat pumps use a compressor and a cooling element to pump or move heat from one place to another, making a structure cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
What are the advantages of a heat pump?
Reduces energy costs
Heat pumps are energy efficient because they do not rely on natural gas to heat and cool your home, and they use much less electricity than other systems. As a result, you save on energy bills.
Hot and cold air in one single system
Heat pumps can produce heat to warm your house in winter and bring in cold air during the hot summer days. There’s no need to install 2 separate systems such as a furnace and an AC.
Tired of your old noisy AC or furnace that sounds like a jet engine? Heat pumps are designed to be quieter than traditional HVAC systems, operating at only 40 decibels as opposed to the more than 60 decibels your AC typically produces.
While heat pumps have a higher upfront cost, their average lifespan is 15 to 20 years, and they require less maintenance than a standard HVAC system..
In summer, a high-efficiency heat pump can do a better job dehumidifying the air than a central AC system, resulting in more cooling comfort and less energy usage.
