Frequently Asked Questions About Heat Pumps
What is a heat pump?
A heat pump is a heating and cooling system that transfers heat from one place to another. It can provide heating in the winter and cooling in the summer by pulling the natural warmth from the air or ground.
How does a heat pump work?
During the winter, heat pumps work by extracting heat from the air or ground outside your home and transferring it inside. In the summer, the process reverses, and the heat pump removes heat and humidity from inside your home and releases it outside, providing cooling.
Are heat pumps energy-efficient?
Yes, heat pumps are highly energy-efficient. Unlike traditional heating and cooling systems that rely on fossil fuels and chemicals, heat pumps handily move heat from one location to another. This efficient transfer results in significant energy savings, reduced utility bills and a smaller carbon footprint.
Can a heat pump replace my existing HVAC system?
In many cases, heat pumps can fully replace traditional furnaces and air conditioners. Their dual function makes them a versatile and cost-effective solution for homeowners.
Will a heat pump work in cold climates?
Modern heat pumps work efficiently in colder climates. They can even extract heat from the air when outdoor temperatures are below freezing, keeping your home cozy all winter.
How long do heat pumps typically last?
A well-maintained heat pump can last between 15 to 20 years. Routine maintenance like servicing, cleaning and preventive repairs can prolong your heat pump’s lifespan.
Are heat pumps environmentally friendly?
Yes, heat pumps are a more environmentally friendly solution than conventional HVAC systems. They don’t burn fossil fuels to generate heat, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions and helps combat climate change.
Can I use a heat pump in conjunction with other heating systems?
You may want to back up your heat pump with a supplemental source for additional flexibility and optimal year-round comfort. Ask about this option when you contact us.
How much can I save on my energy bills with a heat pump?
Your energy savings will vary depending on factors such as your home’s size and the steps you take to make it more efficient, such as upgrading your insulation and windows. However, many homeowners report a significant savings on their monthly energy bills after switching to a heat pump.
