The Benefits of Using Heat Pumps

 

For parts of the country that experience only mild winter conditions, one of the top choices for year-round home comfort is the heat pump. Essentially, a heat pump is an advanced version of the standard air conditioner. It uses circulating refrigerant moved via a compressor to take heat from one location and release it in another. However, a heat pump adds an extra compressor and a reversing valve so it can switch the direction of the refrigerant; and that means it can act as both an air conditioner and a heater, depending on what the homeowner requires. Heat pumps have difficulty removing sufficient heat from the outside air during extremely deep colds that fall below freezing. However, Southern Arizona rarely dips below the high 30s during the winter, so heat pumps make excellent choices.

For help choosing and installing a heat pump, contact Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning.

Here are some of the benefits you can get from heat pumps:

Two-in-One comfort solution: The biggest benefit of a heat pump is that you won’t need to have two separate systems, like a furnace and an air conditioner, to keep you comfortable during any temperature extreme. You have both a heater and an AC at your command.

Energy efficiency: According to the U.S. Department of Energy, if you use electricity as your main source of power, a heat pump can offer yearly savings of 30%-40% off your heating bill if you live in a place with a mild winter climate. This is because heat pumps create cool and warm indoor temperatures by moving heat, not generating it.

Save on space: Aside from taking away the need for separate air conditioning and heating units, heat pumps will save on space since they contain an outdoor unit that won’t take up extra room in your home.

Heat pumps aren’t right for every household, even with all these advantages. They also are intricate machines that need expert installation for them to work properly. So if you’re considering a heat pump for your home, make sure to contact professional HVAC technicians to help you. Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning can determine if a heat pump is right for you, find out which size will give your home the ideal temperatures, and install it so that it will give you years of trouble-free operation.
