It’s time to start thinking about how you can save on energy bills. After all, you hate to see your hard-earned paycheck going towards bills each month, right? Well, we’ve got the perfect solution if you want to give your air conditioner a break this season without sacrificing comfort in your home – heat pumps.
What Is a Heat Pump?
You’ll often find heat pumps in climates with moderate heating and cooling needs. They offer an energy-efficient alternative to air conditioners and furnaces so you can keep warm or cool without breaking the bank.
How Do They Work?
Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from cool spaces to warm spaces. During the winter months, they move heat from the cool outdoors into your home so you can enjoy a warm, cozy atmosphere when the temperatures dip. Since they move heat, rather than create heat, operating costs are lower than traditional heating and air conditioning systems.
What to Look For:
Before you go out to make a purchase, here are some things you should be looking for in a heat pump:
- 2-speed compressors if you’re looking to save on electrical energy and have zone control systems in your home.
- Variable – or dual-speed motors to keep air moving around at a comfortable velocity.
