At Econo West we find that many homeowners do not know what a heat pump is let alone how it can help them. It is true that they are not the best option for all homes but they can work well for many. Read on to learn why you may want to consider one. If you are ready to talk to a local plumber about having one installed, reach out to Econo West at 661-947-2653.
Describing a Heat Pump
First, let us cover what a heat pump and what it is not. It looks much like an air conditioner and works similarly. As an AC unit moves refrigerated air from one place to another, the heat pump does the same with hot air. The main difference is that the heat pump is a reversing valve. This means it reverses the direction of the air as it goes through the system. This heats and cools the home to allow homeowners to install just one unit for both needs.
Heat Pumps Are More Efficient
One of the many reasons people love heat pumps is because they are one of the most energy-efficient HVAC systems on the market. Why? Because they do not actually generate their own heat – they simply move it from one spot to another. When you turn on your heat pump instead of a more traditional furnace, you can save money and reduce your monthly utilities.
Heat Pumps Are Versatile
Why have several machines installed when you can choose just one? With a heat pump, just a flip of the switch gives you comfort every day of the year. When you use the reversing valve, you can switch from heat to cool mode no matter what the temperature is. If you want constant comfort with minimal machines used then this is a great option.
Heat Pumps Bring a Low Cost and Maximum Convenience
In most cases, installing one heat pump – which can cover both heating and cooling – is less expensive than installing both a furnace and an air conditioner. Not only is the initial cost lower, but you will only need ongoing maintenance on one unit rather than maintenance for both. This can be significant savings depending on how and where you are using your heat pump.
