Would You Benefit From a Heat Pump?

Have you heard about heat pumps? These systems provide some impressive benefits when installed in just about any home, not the least of which is the ability to keep your home comfortable all year long!


That’s right. We said all year long.

Heat pumps take the principle of moving heat, which is used by most air conditioners, and apply it throughout the year by finding a way to move heat in AND out of the house. It may sound too good to be true but it isn’t!

If you are on the hunt for a good comfort system for your home, then it may be a good idea to consider a heat pump mini split. Let’s look at what makes these systems so wonderful so you know if it is the right fit for you.

What Might Make a Heat Pump Your Perfect System

You shouldn’t just choose any HVAC system because someone says it is a good idea. You want the system that suits your needs best. Here is what you should know about heat pumps that may make them a good fit for your home.

They heat and cool the home

We touched on this above but let us explain how this is possible. Heat pumps used refrigerant to do their job. This is easier to understand for an air conditioning system as most people know that ACs use refrigerant to transfer heat out of the house. But how does this happy to heating the home?

The heat pump has a reversing valve that reverses the flow of refrigerant and reverses the transfer process too. This allows it to transfer heat into the home. This means that this system is fully equipped and capable of both heating and cooling your home.

They are highly energy efficient

Since they don’t burn extra fuel to create heat, these systems are known for being highly energy efficient. Most heat pumps offer a 14-18 SEER rating and up to a 10 HSPF rating!

They can be ducted or ductless

Maybe you are struggling to find a good system fit because your home is too small or old to accommodate ductwork. That’s okay! You love your home and you will be happy to learn that there are ductless heat pump options that can accommodate your home’s comfort needs without the need for ducts!

They are more environmentally friendly

There is no need for natural gas to be burned to heat your home; no extra water is used to create cold air. Heat pumps operate by moving heat using a closed-loop system. The most this system will impact the environment is the condensation that drips outside when it runs in cooling mode.

We are on the cusp of switching into the cooling season. If you battled through a cold winter and now you are groaning over the idea of a hot summer, it may be time to talk to a pro about getting a heat pump in your home.
