Benefits of Heat Pumps
- Environmentally Friendly
Heat pump is eco-friendly and runs clean. It doesn’t burn fossil fuels, emit gases or fumes. Heat pumps operate on electricity, making it a cleaner source of energy. Heat pump creates up to 3 times more energy than it uses.
- Energy Efficiency
Homeowners opt to use heat pumps to save money and become more efficient. Since heat pumps do not use gas or electricity to heat the air, heating costs are significantly lower. Rather than consuming fuel to heat or cool your home, heat pumps transfer existing heat in or out of your home. Thanks to special innovative engineering, only a small amount of electricity is needed making heat pumps efficient and affordable, significantly saving on utility bills.
- Two-in-one design
Heat pump provides both heating and cooling for your home, making it convenient and cost-effective. With the two-in-one design, there are no additional elements or components to install, combining both heating and cooling in one fairly compact package. There is no need for separate central air conditioner and boiler or furnace- a significant advantage for smaller homes.
- Ease of Maintenance
Since heat pumps do not use fuel, they have fewer working components, making repairs easier to spot and fix. This translates to less maintenance and less need for repair and saves money.
Heat pumps are safer than conventional forced-air systems. Heat pumps run on electricity, so there is no risk for carbon monoxide poisoning or gas explosion.
How Heat Pumps Are Different
While very similar to air conditioners, heat pumps are more complex. Central air unit uses energy to condense the air and create cool air. Heat pump is environmentally friendly because it uses ground temperature or outside air to create change, thus using less energy.
Heat pump system is gaining popularity in Las Vegas area. Instead of creating their own heat like conventional HVAC systems, heat pumps use the energy that is already available.
When inside temperature is too cool, heat pump will extract heat from outdoors and transfer it indoors. In similar fashion, when inside temperature is hot, heat pump will extract heat from indoors and transfer it outside, leaving indoors nice and cool.
Heat transfer is performed through coils, which extract energy from the air, water, or ground. Unlike conventional systems, heat pumps don’t burn fossil fuel. This makes it very environmentally friendly and extremely energy-efficient. Heat pumps are as energy efficient as a natural gas furnace. When correctly serviced and maintained, heat pump is a great choice.
For economy, heat pumps systems are designed for average low winter temperatures and use supplemental heating for extreme low temperature conditions. Advantage of heat pump is that it reduces purchased energy required for building heating.
Assessing Need for Heat Pump
Not every home or every situation is right for a heat pump. If you already have a natural gas furnace, it’s probably better to stick with using the furnace and an air conditioner. Investing in a heat pump just to work in cooling mode is not cost-efficient. Unless you are planning to replace your entire HVAC system, it will be more affordable to add an AC.
