Your Raleigh, NC area home may just be an excellent candidate for heat pump HVAC installation. In fact, heat pump technology offers a few valuable benefits you should probably consider before choosing your new or replacement HVAC system.
1. A Heat Pump Installation Delivers Year-Round Comfort
When you opt for a heat pump installation, you are choosing a year-round home comfort system. Because heat pumps are reversible systems, they are capable of providing both heating and cooling to your space. In winter, the system draws heat from the outside air or from underground and moves it inside your home to provide warmth. In summer, the system does the reverse: It moves the warm air from inside your home to the outdoors to provide dependable cooling.
2. Heat Pump Technology Offers Energy Efficiency Savings
Because heat pumps don’t actually generate warm or cool air but simply move that air from one location to another, less energy is typically required for conditioning your space. Particularly in the Southern states, where winters are less extreme, winter heating can bring significant savings. According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, heat pump technology can heat and cool your home for as little as one-fourth the cost of other heating and AC technologies. According to The Environmental Protection Agency, ground-source heat pumps can deliver as much as five times the energy from underground for each unit of electricity they use to power the pump. The key here is using your heat pump wisely.
3. Heat Pump Service Offers Multiple Versatile Technologies
Because heat pump technology is so versatile, tailoring your heat pump system to your family’s needs is simple. Available heat pump technologies include air-source heat pumps, water-source heat pumps, ground-source heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps and even ductless mini-split heat pump systems for homes that lack existing ductwork. Your HVAC professional can help you determine whether a heat pump system is right for you, and if so, which type would best meet your heating and cooling needs.
