If you’re looking for a simple way to save on your energy bills, you should consider using a heat pump. Heat pumps help you save money without sacrificing comfort. While it may have the word “heat” in the name, a heat pump can help you in both hot and cold weather. It can also at times perform more efficiently than an air conditioner or a more traditional heater. Heat pumps work best in moderate climates.
How a Heat Pump Works
A heat pump functions by moving heat from one area to another. This is also how most air conditioning units work. The main difference between the two is that heat pumps do more to keep the house comfortable all year long.
In cold weather, a heat pump extracts warm air from outside and moves it inside to warm the home. Even when it’s cold outside, there is still warm air present. The heat pump is able to transfer it into the home where it’s needed. In warm weather, it reverses the heat extraction process, taking heat from the inside of the house and releasing it outside. That way, the air inside stays cool when it’s warmer outside.
By heating and cooling a home using a small amount of energy, a heat pump is a very efficient way of keeping your home comfortable all year. A heat pump works with an air handler or a furnace to distribute air throughout the home. When the season changes from heating too cooling, you only need to make a few simple adjustments to prepare.
