At Northern Services, we want to help you get comfortable at home in a way that’s best for you.
If you, like so many people these days, care about clean energy solutions, we can help you modify your heating and cooling to achieve that. After all, these are good for both the environment and your wallet because of how efficient they are.
One of the most common clean energy heating and cooling solutions is the heat pump. You may not have heard of them before, but they are becoming more and more popular in our area. Keep reading or give our Olivia HVAC experts a call to learn everything you need to know about clean energy and heat pumps.
What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is an appliance that can be used to both heat and cool your home or part of your home. Instead of heating and cooling air, like regular HVAC systems do, they transfer heat from one place to another.
In the winter, a heat pump takes heat from the air outside your home and pumps it inside. In the summer, the process is the opposite; the heat pump will take heat from your home and pump it outside.
Heat Pumps and Efficiency
Heat pumps offer maximum energy efficiency. Since they don’t generate heat or cool air themselves, they use only a fraction of the energy that traditional heating and cooling systems need. Transferring air is so much easier! This means that they use less energy to get you the same amount of heating and cooling.
Heat pumps also don’t produce any greenhouse gasses when they run, which makes them a clean energy solution. Again, they’re taking the heat that exists and moving it, not making more, which means they don’t produce any byproducts. This means that heat pumps reduce your carbon footprint, too.
Because heat pumps are so efficient, they can result in major savings on your energy bills every month, regardless of whether you’re using them for heating or cooling. In fact, some homeowners save up to 50% on their heating and cooling costs when they install a heat pump.
Is a Heat Pump Right For You?
Heat pumps are amazing, but they aren’t the right solution for every family or every home. Our heating and air conditioning technicians can come out, take a look at your home, and let you know if we think one of these would be right for you. We can also tell you what system modifications we would need to make to install one. If you choose a heat pump, we’ll get it working for you fast.
