Are you looking for a more efficient way to heat and cool your home?
If you live in a mild climate, you might want to consider heat pumps over a traditional heating and cooling system. Heat pumps are more efficient because they transfer heat rather than burn fuel to create it. Ultimately this makes heat pumps a little more ‘green’ than a gas burning furnace.
How do heat pumps work?
Heat pumps use a small amount of energy to move heat from an area of low temperature to an area of high temperature. The heat is transferred from the heat source such as the ground or the air, and into your home. The system can also operate in the opposite direction, releasing the heat from your home and cooling the inside.
What are the pros and cons of heat pumps?
While heat pump are very energy efficient, they tend to work best in mild climates that don’t experience freezing temperatures don’t fall near or below freezing. A supplemental heat source may be required to produce warmth in climates that are more extreme. Heat pumps also tend to produce a milder heat. If you’ve grown accustom to the blast of heat provided by a furnace, then a heat pump may not be for you.
