Heat Pumps-the HVAC alternative to central air conditioning.
Heat pumps are slowly being recognized as an alternative to conventional air conditioning systems. We install and service these systems and can attest to their efficiency.
Comparing a Heat Pump to a Central Air Conditioning System
Both central air conditioning systems and heat pump systems are types of HVAC systems as they both generate cool and warm inside temperatures. What sets these systems apart is how each heats a building. A heat pump reverses the airflow direction utilizing a reversing valve built into the compressor and transfers heat from the outside to raise indoor temperatures. Heat pumps cool inside temperatures by removing the heat from your building to the outdoors. A conventional central AC system relies on electric-resistant heat strips within the air handler to produce and distribute warm air.
Heat Pump Vs. Central Air Conditioning Costs
All major manufacturers offer Heat Pump systems. While conventional central air conditioners might be less expensive, heat pumps provide cooling and heating more efficiently, reducing monthly energy costs.
Heat Pumps offer two benefits that might make them a good choice when you are ready to purchase a new HVAC system.
1) In colder weather, a heat pump is energy efficient because it uses air already in your home. The cost savings are estimated to be one-quarter of the cost of conventional heating or cooling systems.
2) Not only do Heat Pumps save you energy and money, but they are also better than conventional AC at removing humidity.
