When your air conditioner finally breaks down, the situation can seem stressful. But you can also see it as an opportunity to select a more energy efficient system for new installation. One of the most powerful and efficient cooling and heating systems available is the heat pump. A heat pump is a highly effective system for total home comfort; here’s why you should choose a heat pump for AC replacement.
A heating and cooling system in one
One of the greatest features of the heat pump is its ability to both cool and heat your home. A heat pump uses refrigeration (like your current air conditioner or refrigerator) to move heat out of a space. Refrigerant cycles through the indoor and outdoor components, absorbing heat from the air in your home and moving it outdoors.
In the winter, a heat pump is able to reverse this process. A couple of extra parts allow refrigerant to move in the opposite direction, absorbing heat from the outside air (yes, even in cooler weather) and moving this heat to the inside. It’s often more convenient and sometimes more cost effective to replace your heating and cooling equipment at once.
The other major benefit of a heat pump is its efficiency. Manufacturers use only the highest quality parts and equipment so that everything runs smoothly and efficiently year round. The best heat pumps repeatedly outrank many standard heaters and air conditioners as far as efficiency ratings are concerned, partly because of the way they are designed.
While traditional heaters generate heat, a heat pump only has to move it. This process requires much less energy, but your system can still only run efficiently if you hire specialists for heat pump installation or service. Be sure your technician is experienced enough with these unique systems to perform any necessary service.
