Curious About A Heat Pump?

Home Hacks, Home Heating and Cooling, Home Tips

Did you know that cooling and heating your home is your biggest energy user? In fact, it’s not even close.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, your HVAC typically accounts for nearly half of your utility bill! So, if you’re looking for a place to save, your HVAC would be a great place to start.

But don’t worry; you don’t have to sweat in the summer and freeze in the winter to save energy. There are many easy heating and cooling tips you can try — but the best may be ditching your HVAC!

No, we’re not suggesting you live “off the grid.” Instead, if you’re thinking of replacing your old HVAC, consider upgrading to an ENERGY STAR® certified heat pump!

What is a heat pump? 

Don’t let the name fool you; a heat pump system heats and cools your home. Plus, it does it a lot more energy efficiently than your conventional HVAC.

Here’s how it works:

Unlike a traditional furnace and air conditioner, heat pumps transfer heat between the outside and inside of the home.

It’s not magic; it’s science! Specifically, by using the expansion of the refrigerant, a heat pump efficiently provides comfortable temperatures for your home all year round.

  • When the weather is cool, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house
  • When the weather is warm, heat pumps move heat from your house into the outdoors

Heat pumps use significantly less energy than traditional HVACs — up to 50% — and can potentially cut costs from your energy bill too. Plus, they can provide better indoor air quality because there are no direct emissions, such as carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide.

Think you need to make major construction to your house before switching to a heat pump? Think again!

Heat pumps can replace most types of existing HVAC units using your home’s pre-existing duct work.

Best part? You’ll not only save energy and money, you won’t notice a difference in your home’s comfort. You’ll still be cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and comfy all year long!
