What’s So Great About Heat Pumps Anyway?

You’ve likely heard all the buzz surrounding heat pumps and thought to yourself, “Yeah sure, but can they really be that great?”

We are going to try and be totally unbiased when we answer this question, and our answer is: Yes, heat pumps are quite fantastic.

Heat pumps are known for their ability to provide year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch, and they do so quite efficiently and effectively. Of course, we’ve figured that many of you are going to be rather unconvinced, so below, we’ve listed just some of the many benefits of installing a heat pump in your home. Keep reading to find out more!

First Off, What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump works much like a traditional air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what sets the heat pump apart is its ability to reverse the flow of refrigerant via the reversing valve, allowing for home heating in addition to cooling.

Beat that, air conditioners.

What are the Benefits?

Like we mentioned above, there are dozens of benefits of installing a heat pump, including:

Versatility

A heat pump allows for year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch! What other HVAC systems can do that?

The reversing valve is used to reverse the flow of refrigerant so you can flip between “heating mode” and “cooling mode.” No longer will you have to worry about the cost of maintaining two different HVAC systems, as a heat pump will be able to take care of both your heating and air conditioning in Savannah, GA. 

Efficiency

Heat pumps are one of the most efficient HVAC systems on the market, as they do not generate their own heat but rather move it from one place to another. This significantly cuts energy costs and limits the need for repairs. In fact, you can end up saving hundreds of dollars when you make the switch.

Comfort

When cooling your home, the heat pump will run in longer cycles. This allows it to dehumidify the air more than a traditional air conditioner would, which in turn helps the system to cool your home more efficiently and effectively.

Accessibility

Not all homes have the space for the ductwork required to install a traditional forced-air heater or air conditioner. If this is the case, a heat pump is your best bet, as they also come in ductless models.

Ductless systems eliminate the need for bulky ductwork and can do the job just as well. Instead of ductwork, ductless systems rely on one outdoor condenser unit which is attached via refrigerant lines to multiple indoor air handlers.

So, What are You Waiting For?

If you are currently in the market for a new heater or air conditioner this year, consider a heat pump! Of course, it is important to first consult with a professional before you make any final decisions. A professional HVAC technician will be able to match you with the system that is going to best meet your needs.
