Heat Pumps – The Ultimate Solution for Homes in the Northeast!
Compared to traditional furnace and A/C units, heat pumps have a variety of benefits that make them the clear leader in heating and cooling your home. These include lower maintenance costs, more flexible installation options, a simplified design, and most importantly – they’re remarkably more energy efficient to save you big throughout the year. Most homeowner will enjoy a 10-30% decrease in their bills with this percentage even higher in homes that are properly insulated and have energy efficient windows and doors installed.
What Makes Heat Pumps so Energy Efficient?
The main reason heat pumps far outperform the efficiency levels found in traditional HVAC systems is heat pumps will transfer warm or cold air from one part of your home to another. This heat transfer is much more efficient than systems that simply heat or cool air and evenly disperse it throughout your home.
When a heat pump cools the air in your home, it is intelligently taking the warm air trapped in your home and transferring it outside of your home. In the wintertime, as your heat pump works to heat your home, it takes the cooler air from outside your home, heats it, and moves it throughout your home.
In both scenarios, your heat pump is able to use the heat it finds in the air, both inside and outside your home, in order to both heat and cool the air throughout the rooms in your home. This allows the air in your home to never be heated more than is necessary which leads to amazing efficiency levels.
Let’s take a simple example. In the wintertime, even when the air outside is at 5°F, there is still heat that exists in that air. Your heat pump will circulate refrigerant throughout the coils that is much colder than 5°F, cooled well into negative numbers. Since heat tends to naturally move towards air that is colder than itself, your heat pump is able to attract, and extract, that warmer air from the environment and transfer it into your home by way of the compressor and refrigerant.
