If you are looking for a heating and cooling system that runs on a fuel other than oil or gas, installing a heat pump is worth your consideration. Just like an air conditioner cools your home by extracting heat from the inside air, a heat pump will warm your home by extracting heat from the outside air and transporting it inside.
You may not think it is possible to extract heat from the outside air when it’s 40℉ outside, but it is. Heat energy is always present in the air. Like any other HVAC system, the compressor uses electricity to run, but it is not electric heat. A heat pump uses thermodynamics to help regulate the temperature in your home.
Reasons to Purchase a Heat Pump
Heating and Cooling – A heat pump can either warm or cool your home. When winter arrives it will take heat from outside and transport it inside. In the summer it will take the heat from inside your house and release it outside.
Efficient – Heat pumps are efficient in the fact that they do not need to burn fuel to produce heat. Instead, they use electricity to power components that transport heat that already exists.
Safe – Since heat pumps don’t burn dangerous gas, they are safer than furnaces or boilers that are powered by natural gas or propane. There are also no hot surfaces to worry about accidentally bumping or touching.
Convenient – Unlike a propane or oil furnace, you won’t have to schedule fuel deliveries with a heat pump.
