Why is a heat pump best for my home?
Outside the US Heat pumps are the number one system used to heat and cool homes. They almost double the energy savings of normal AC units in the home due to their efficient variable speed features. The heat pump rotates, air around the entire room which helps keep the temperature even. It’s also super quiet, you practically cannot hear it working indoors or outdoors. When it comes to the outdoors the unit is much smaller and blows the air sideways rather than upwards like their traditional bulkier counterparts. This allows for the unit to be installed in many more places. It can be installed pretty much wherever you choose – under decks or even mounted on the side of a wall. During winter time a reversing valve switches the process up and uses the fan to blow the cold air out of the home and pump warm air in. The process reverses in warmer weather. This is the brilliance of a heat pump.
How is a heat pump different from central air?
Heat pumps and central air systems differ in a few key ways. The first is that heat pumps use front and a reversing valve to allow for both heating and cooling depending on the temperatures outdoors. Heat pumps are far more energy efficient and maintain temperatures well due to its variable speed function. Unlike traditional central air units heat pumps do not need ducts, and that is partly what allows them to run so efficiently. Heat pumps also only have two filters right on them that you can easily clean out about once a month.
