The Benefits of Heat Pump Installation Services
They provide heating and cooling
Homeowners in the Champaign, Illinois area love their heat pumps because they provide both heating and air conditioning for year-round comfort. Heat pumps use a reverse valve to change the direction of the refrigerant to give the system the ability to switch from cooling to heating and vice versa. Because a heat pump heating system doesn’t work as efficiently once the temperatures dip below freezing, we recommend installing electric heat strips or a backup furnace for supplemental heat during those really cold days.
When the heat pump provides heating in the winter, it doesn’t rely on fossil fuels such as natural gas, oil, or propane for heating, making them much more environmentally friendly than traditional heating systems such as furnaces. If you’re looking for an easy way to reduce your home’s carbon footprint, lower its energy consumption and decrease utility bills, consider having a new heat pump installed in your home.
According to Energy.gov, heat pumps can reduce a home’s electricity use during the heating season by about 50% compared to electric resistance heating such as furnaces. Lower energy costs mean more of your hard-earned money stays in your wallet. During the cooling season in the spring and summer, homeowners can save money on electrical costs because heat pumps do a better job at dehumidifying a home.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Because heat pumps don’t burn fossil fuels and no fumes or combustion byproducts are created, they deliver better indoor air quality to homes, and there is no risk of carbon monoxide filling the air.
