4 benefits of installing a heat pump
There are many benefits to having the Foulks team install a heat pump in your home. Here are the four biggest reasons to have our team put a heat pump in your home.
#1. You only need one system
A heat pump is capable of both heating and cooling your home. Heat pumps work by moving heat energy out of air from one place to another.
In the summer, the system “pumps” that heat energy out of your living spaces, cooling down your indoor temperatures. In the winter, it extracts it from the cold air outside, pumping it inside.
The capability to both cool and heat your home is the heat pump’s greatest advantage over traditional HVAC systems. You only need to buy one system, which can represent major cost savings.
#2. Improved energy efficiency
Heat pumps are more energy efficient than traditional HVAC units. They tend to utilize less energy, resulting in cost savings. You can typically recover the higher upfront cost of the system within a few years of installation.
When the heat pumps are installed by a professional, you can get an energy efficiency of over 45 percent as compared to traditional HVAC system. With a heat pump, you can benefit from hundreds of dollars in savings.
#3. Reduced carbon footprint
Because heat pumps cut down on your energy use for years to come, they help you reduce your carbon footprint and environmental impact.
And because they’re capable of both heating and cooling, a heat pump means you’re not buying two systems—that’s a reduction in the materials used to make HVAC systems and the carbon needed in manufacturing.
When you install a heat pump, you can feel good in knowing that you have played your part in making the earth more environmentally-friendly.
#4. Easier maintenance and upkeep
Heat pumps are much easier to maintain as compared to traditional HVAC system. You only need to have a professional tune up a single unit instead of two independent heating and cooling units.
