In the U.S., heat pumps have gained popularity as an efficient heating and cooling option. And let’s be honest; everyone wants to save money on their utility bills. Did you know they are highly efficient and will yield energy savings year after year? What’s more, they are more environmentally friendly when compared to other heating and cooling systems. A heat pump works by moving heat from one place to another. Air is pulled into the evaporator via an electric engine. As a result of that heat, the refrigerant begins to boil and turns it into a gas, where it can then move into the compressor for heating. The gas warms the air and pushes it through the ducts to raise the temperature or keep it stabilized. A heat pump can also work in the opposite way to move warm air out of the home to keep it cool, which is beneficial as the seasons change.
One of the key reasons that homeowners choose heat pumps is the cost savings they can provide over other heating and cooling methods. There are several factors in different types of heat pumps that can make them more energy efficient and thus save you more each month. Homeowners should also remember some important tips to maximize the savings available through the usage of the heat pump.
