Are you interested in lowering your home heating costs? Do you have a furnace that needs to be replaced? Are you currently constructing a new home and need to have a heating system installed? If you answered yes to any of these questions, a heat pump may be the best option for you. Heat pumps are known for their efficiency and low cost operation. Although the purchase price is slightly higher than that of a traditional furnace, the energy savings will make up for that cost in just a few years. You will save more in the long run with Asheville heat pump installation.
Heat Pumps are energy efficient
Heat pump technology is a very efficient way to heat and cool your home. A heat pump transfers warm air in and out of your home rather than creating warm air with a fuel source. When the weather is cold, a minimal amount of energy is used to pull existing warmth out of the air outside and bring it inside to warm your home. When the weather gets warm, the heat pump pulls warmth out of the air inside your home and transfers it outside to make your home cooler. This process of transferring air is the technology behind the efficiency of heat pumps, and efficiency leads to savings.
Mother Earth prefers heat pumps
Heat pumps only use a small amount of electricity to keep your home comfortable, as opposed to the way furnaces burn fuel to create heat. Combustion is the scientific term for burning fuel, and the process produces carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is a pollutant that has negative effects on our health. It also negatively impacts the environment and atmosphere. Environmental concerns regarding energy have prompted the federal government to offer tax credits for switching to heat pumps.
Heat pumps perform double duty
One of the best things about a heat pump is that it can also cool your home. One system performs both heating and cooling with the same energy efficient technology. A heat pump cools your home more efficiently than a traditional air conditioner because it transfers warm air out of your home rather than simply blowing cool air into your home. Heat pumps use less electricity to cool your home than other air conditioners.
To enjoy energy savings, proper installation is key
The installation is the most important step to efficient home heating and cooling. Accurate refrigerant levels, properly positioned and sealed ductwork, and correct electrical wiring are key components to heat pump installation. If any of these, among other things, are not installed correctly, the heat pump will not perform efficiently and will not last very long.
