If you’ve come across this blog post, we’re going to take a guess and say that you’re in the market for a new cooling system. Whether you’re considering having a different type of air conditioner installed, or replacing your old one for the same type, we believe it’s worth your time to consider the benefits of a heat pump system.
Heat pumps offer comfort and budget solutions for homeowners all throughout Lawrenceville and beyond. They’re great systems, that can keep your indoor climate at an ideal temperature all year long. Want to learn more about the benefits and see if a heat pump is the answer to your cooling needs? Well then read on!
First, What’s a Heat Pump?
A heat pump system operates similarly to a traditional central air conditioner. It relies on the flow of refrigerant in order to transfer heat from one place to another. So in the summer, it absorbs heat from inside your home and uses a refrigerant process to chill the air.
There is a component within a heat pump that differentiates it from a traditional central AC, though, and that’s the reversing valve. This component is used to reverse the flow of refrigerant through the system, which allows for efficient home heating in addition to cooling.
Heat pumps are available with ducts or without. Depending on the layout and size of your specific home, you’ll be able to find the system that best meets your needs, with the help of our pros. Ducted systems are set up like central air conditioners while ductless systems are comprised of a single outdoor unit connected to up to four indoor air handlers, each of which can be independently controlled.
So, What Are the Benefits?
We’re glad you asked! There are actually a number of benefits to using a heat pump for your cooling (and heating) needs, including the following.
Perhaps the best benefit of using a heat pump is improved efficiency. Since these systems don’t generate heat in the wintertime but instead transfer it, they use far less energy than standard furnaces. They’re great for boosting cooling efficiency as well! Installing a heat pump is a great way to boost your home’s energy efficiency and also cut back on your monthly energy bills.
No air conditioning system or heater has the ability to cool and heat your home, except for a heat pump system. With just the flip of a switch, you’re able to transition between heating and cooling mode easily, depending on your home comfort needs.
When you have a heat pump installed, you’ll never have to worry about the cost of maintaining two separate HVAC systems. As you’re probably well aware, costly repairs and untimely replacements can put a huge dent in your wallet. And then when you multiply that cost by 2, it can be understandably stressful! With a heat pump system, you only need to worry about servicing one system.
