What is a Heat Pump?
Heat pump technology isn’t actually a new technology, even though many homeowners haven’t heard of it or are unfamiliar with it. Heat pump transfer heat instead of creating heat itself. It takes heat from one space and moves it to another by way of an indoor unit and an outdoor unit.
This is the same technology that most refrigerators use and the great thing about heat pumps is the process can be reversed in the summer months, functioning as an air conditioner, making it a great choice for an all in one system.
Why Choose a Heat Pump?
If you’ve been looking for a heating alternative for your home, heat pumps offer different benefits than traditional heating systems like furnaces, which is why they’re growing in popularity. Some of the benefits of choosing a heat pump can include:
- Better for the environment
- Safer for your home
- More energy efficiency
- Lower utility costs
- Can heat and cool a home
- Extended unit life span (up to 50 years!)
- Less maintenance
Generally, the main perk is their versatility. Because they move air instead of producing it, they can work both in the winter and summer. They’re also slightly smaller and definitely quieter than traditional central HVAC systems, making them an ideal choice for new construction projects or home upgrades.
