What Makes a Heat Pump Such a Great Investment?
As with any major investment, you want to know for certain that you are going to get a great return from your HVAC system. When you invest in a heat pump, this is more or less guaranteed. For starters, your heat pump is the only HVAC system that you are going to need. You can use it to cool your home during the summer, just as you would a traditional central air conditioner. In the winter, though, the cooling process is reversed, and the heat pump absorbs heat from the air outside, compresses its refrigerant, and uses its thermal energy in order to heat the house.
Because the heat pump uses this heat transfer process in order to heat homes, it is also able to heat those homes very efficiently. Only a small amount of electricity is used in the process, and no heat is actually generated. Essentially, the heat pump just moves heat around, and concentrates it during the heating process.
One important thing to remember, though, is to protect your investment. Your heat pump is basically doing twice the amount of work of a traditional heater and air conditioner. With that in mind, you should schedule bi-annual, as opposed to annual, heat pump maintenance.
