3 Benefits of Heat Pumps
When deciding to replace your old furnace, you may want to think outside of the box and consider alternatives to conventional heating systems. One great option for many homeowners is to replace your heater with a heat pump. Heat pumps heat your home by extracting heat particles from the air outside and bringing them into your home, providing warmth without using a ton of energy. Here are three major benefits of choosing a heat pump:
Heat Pumps Provide Both Heating and Cooling
Perhaps the best benefit of heat pumps is that they cool your home in the summer and warm it in the winter, allowing you to replace both your old furnace and your old air conditioner with one new appliance. When it's warm outside, your heat pump will transfer warm air from your home to outside, cooling things down to a comfortable temperature. In the winter, this mechanism reverses and works by pumping warm molecules in the outdoor air into your home. Your home will stay comfortable year-round all thanks to one very convenient heat pump.
Heat Pumps are Energy-Efficient
Heat pumps are also remarkably energy-efficient, especially compared to conventional heaters. On average, you can expect to save around $450 annually by switching from a traditional furnace to a heat pump.
Heat Pumps Are Safe
Even when heating your home, heat pumps are cool to the touch and have a very low fire risk. This makes them safer than many conventional types of heaters, especially if you have small children at home.
