Would you like to save up to 40 percent off your energy bill year after year? Of course, you would. That’s the reason you should consider getting a new, highly efficient heat pump for your house. While there is no denying that the costs of buying and installing a heat pump are often on the high side, depending on where you live, you can recoup the total cost after just a couple of years in utility savings. Homeowners who are planning to stay in their home long-term can save tens of thousands of dollars over the years.
How Do Heats Pumps Help You Save?
Heat pumps save you money throughout the year regardless of the season. Whether it is a frigid December evening or a sunny and hot August day, your heat pump will help your home maintain a comfortable temperature without the need to run your furnace or air conditioner. It is true that a modern heat pump can replace your home’s air conditioning unit and even your furnace in moderate climates. In more extreme climates, a heat pump can help reduce the number of hours your furnace must run to heat your home, reducing your utility bill and servicing costs.
How Does a Heat Pump Work?
Perhaps a better name for a heat pump is a heat exchange unit. When you install a heat pump, it moves heat between your home and the outside. In hot weather, a heat pump removes the stale, hot air from your home and replaces it with cooler outside air. Many heat pump models collect underground air which is naturally warmer than the air temperature during the winter and cooler during the summer months. In the winter, a heat pump moves this warmer underground air into the cooler home raising the entire temperature significantly.
