Why Heat Pumps Are So Successful
It’s important that we focus on the term “successful” in this blog post, because there are several factors that lead to an HVAC system being successful or unsuccessful in affordably keeping your home comfortable. You could spend all the money in the world on an average HVAC unit, but we’d rather try to find you the best system for your prospective budget and home space.
Heat pumps are incredibly successful for three distinct reasons that we’ll get into below. They do a great job at keeping homeowners comfortable for affordable rates throughout the year. And we really mean throughout the year because heat pumps are also air conditioning systems in addition to heaters!
First, we need to talk about energy efficiency. All heating and cooling systems are powered by some fuel source. Gas furnaces are powered by natural gas, and heat pumps are powered by electricity. That fuel costs money every month to consume, and it’s important that your system can keep your home comfortable while consuming as little fuel as possible.
Heat pumps are successful in this field because they have incredibly high energy efficiency ratings that usually go above and beyond what other systems do. Also, heat pumps run on electricity, which is becoming more and more abundant, as well as affordable.
This one is easy. Heat pumps provide heating during the winter and cooling during the summer. All you need to do is flip a switch from heating to cooling mode (and vice versa). This versatility allows homeowners who would normally need two systems throughout the year to save money on the purchase price and buy a single unit for year-round comfort.
They Can Be Ductless
Did you know that heat pumps can also be ductless? That’s right, if your home has no room for ductwork, or you simply can’t fit the installation of ductwork into your budget, then a ductless heat pump system might be perfect for you.
Yes, these systems are just as energy-efficient and impressive as their centralized siblings, sometimes homeowners even prefer the ductless models for their increased versatility and ability to run when one air handler breaks down.
