5 Reasons to Order a Heat Pump Installation
- Air Conditioning
Most of the time, if you’re looking for a system that can both heat and cool your home, you’ll be getting an HVAC system. However, if you’re looking for something different, you might want to consider a heat pump. Heat pumps are a cost-effective alternative to the classic HVAC system. Instead of radiating heat or cold air, heat pumps move warm air into or out of your home to keep if comfortable. At McHale’s, we can help you with a heat pump installation and tell you why you might want to order one for your home.
Here are five reasons a heat pump installation might be right for you:
Every type of heating and cooling system has different lifespans. These lifespans are highly dependent on whether they get proper and regular maintenance. Heat pumps can often last fourteen or fifteen years when cared for properly, which is one of the higher ranges for heating and cooling systems.
Heating and cooling combined
Keeping your home warm in the winter is one thing, but what about keeping it cool in the summer? Usually, this means you either need an HVAC system or to have both a heater and an AC. However, with a heat pump, you have an alternative option for heating and cooling your home with only a single unit.
Uses a common fuel; no need to stockpile
Electricity is a common fuel source, but many heating and cooling systems use physical fuels like oil or propane. While some of these have dedicated lines, you’ll often still need to stockpile fuel for emergencies. Meanwhile, heat pumps use electricity, which is available for every homeowner and doesn’t require stockpiling. In a worst-case scenario, you can fuel your heat pump with a generator.
Very energy efficient
Compared to other heating and cooling options, heat pumps are very energy efficient. The electricity they run on is a cleaner fuel than other options such as oil or gas. They’re also very efficient at using the electricity itself. If you want to maximize your heat pump’s efficiency, they work best when there’s little difference between the source and supply temperatures. This means they work best in moderate climates.
Low carbon emissions
Heat pumps are an environmentally-friendly alternative to most other heating and cooling systems. Using one for your home can be a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. For instance, you can reduce your energy usage by 30-60% by using a water source heat pump. This sort of heat pump transfers heat to/from a source of water to regulate your home’s temperature.
