Throughout the U.S., heat pumps are rapidly gaining popularity as the go-to choice for heating and cooling. And although these systems can have higher installation costs, there are numerous benefits to having one in your home as the primary heating source.
Here are some signs that a heat pump may be the right choice for you.
You want to heat and cool your home more efficiently. One of the great things about heat pumps is that they can work to both heats and cool your home. This makes them an environmentally friendly solution for year-round comfort—keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Rather than generating energy, heat pumps move air from the inside of your home to the outside, and vice versa. Only 1kW of electricity can produce as much as 4kW of heat; so, they require less energy to get the job done and serve as a high-efficiency alternative to other types of systems.
You have a busy lifestyle. With just the touch of a button, you can activate your heat pump, set the temperature, and get on with your day. Other heating devices require a lot more preparation—building a fire with kindling, for example—but a heat pump is incredibly easy and quick to use. You can leave it on when you’re away from home, and return to a house that’s the perfect temperature.
Even more, many heat pumps have a timer option, allowing you to program them to turn on at certain times of day (and off at others). This means that you’ll never again have to shiver while tiptoeing to the kitchen in the morning or keep your coat on when you return from work.
You have children or pets. A heat pump is one of the safest systems available. No more worrying about your children, or even your pets, harming themselves on a naked flame. With a heat pump, there are no hot surfaces that your family can burn themselves on.
Furthermore, heat pumps are cleaner, quieter, and odorless. These systems can increase the quality of the air in your home by circulating air around the home and zapping dust and odors. For this reason, they are great in a family home, especially one with young children or individuals who suffer from allergies.
You care about the environment. Heat pumps do not give off any harmful fumes or gases, and they do not burn fossil fuels. They are, therefore, a greener option for heating and cooling your home. They only require a small amount of electricity to function. So if you want the least environmental damage possible, a heat pump may be the best option for you.
