What Is a Heat Pump System?
A heat pump system uses metal coils, a fan, and refrigerant to absorb ambient heat from inside or outside your home and transfers it efficiently to heat or cool your home. During the winter, a heat pump moves heat from the outdoors into your home. During the summer, a heat pump removes hot air from your home into the outdoors. Instead of generating heat, a heat pump simply moves air around efficiently, so they are more eco-friendly and low-energy than other heating and cooling systems. A heat pump system can be ducted or ductless, meaning it can transfer and displace air using an air duct system, or it can operate via a mini-split heat pump that uses a reverse cycle chiller to generate hot and cold air.
Why Choose a Heat Pump Over Other Heating Systems?
A heat pump can reduce your electric use for heating by around 50% when compared to other heating systems like furnaces and baseboard heaters. A high-efficiency heat pump also offers superior dehumidification when compared to other cooling systems, which means it uses less energy and can keep your home cooler in the summer. Here’s a look at some of the benefits of a heat pump:
- More eco-friendly than other heating and cooling systems
- Cleaner energy and lower carbon footprint
- Can reduce your energy bills
- Might qualify you for tax credits or subsidies
- Installation, repair, and maintenance is simpler than other heating systems
- Improves the comfort of your home, year-round
What Fuel Does a Heat Pump Use?
Heat pumps are powered by electricity, so you don’t need to pay for natural gas, oil, or propane to fuel your home’s heating and cooling system.
Is a Heat Pump Eco-Friendly?
A heat pump can serve as an energy-efficient heating and cooling system year-round. Because heat pumps don’t burn fossil fuels, you can reduce your carbon footprint and do your part to fight climate change. A heat pump is more efficient than other heating and cooling systems, so it doesn’t need to run as long or work as hard to keep your home comfortable. This means that you’re using less electricity to heat or cool your home, and in the long-term, that will make your system more eco-friendly.
Can I Tell if My Heat Pump Needs Repair or Maintenance?
While heat pumps require less repair and maintenance when compared to other systems, you can still extend the lifespan of your heat pump system by scheduling routine inspections and maintenance. Here are some of the warning signs you might need heat pump repair or heat pump maintenance:
- Your heat pump system is over 15 years old
- It has been more than a year since your heat pump system was evaluated or maintained
- You’ve noticed ice developing on the coil
- You’ve noticed restricted airflow through your air duct system
- You hear strange noises or clicking sounds
- The auxiliary heat system is constantly turning on
- Your bills are increasing, but your home isn’t a comfortable temperature
Can a Heat Pump Installation Save Money?
According to a study conducted by the EPA, a heat pump installation can reduce your electricity usage for heating by up to 50% when compared to other heating systems like a furnace or baseboard heating. On average, heat pumps can save you 20-70% on your annual heating and cooling costs. Because heat pumps require little maintenance, you will also save on repair and maintenance costs when compared to other heating and cooling systems. Additionally, switching to a heat pump can protect you from the rising costs of natural gas, oil, and propane.
