Energy Efficient Heat Pump: The Perfect Heating & Cooling Solution
Heating and cooling your home accounts for over 50% of your average monthly bill. That is why it is important to think wisely about which type of heater to purchase when upgrading or installing a new heater. A heat pump heater is a very popular and energy efficient heating solution that is available on the market today. There are certain features which make heat pump heaters a very attractive prospect for home and business owners. This article will outline some of those features so that you can learn more about heat pump heaters and begin to decide if it is the right choice for you.
What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is a heating and cooling system that uses electricity efficiently to heat and cool a home. Rather than generating heat, a heat pump will transfer heat from one space to another. This concept of transferring heat rather then generating it uses less electrical output and saves money on your electrical bill. An outdoor unit which contains a compressor and condenser takes heat from inside your home and transfers it outside during the warmer months of the year. During the colder months, the exact opposite process occurs. The unit extracts heat from the ground or air surrounding the outside of the home and moves it indoors. In cold to moderately cold climates, there is still enough heat in the air to be condensed and heat a home.
Quick and Easy Heat Pump Installation
Ductless heat pumps are extremely easy to install. They are perfect for wide open spaces and hard to reach places such as basements, attics and lofts. Many clients wonder if a large unit has to be installed in every room in order to heat the whole house. This is not necessary. With so many options on the market today, it is possible to merge ductless systems with small ducts that can be easily installed to transfer heat from room to room.
