Types of Heat Pumps
There are different types of heat pumps to choose from, but the three most common are:
- Air-Source – This warms and cools the air using electricity instead of fuel. It is highly efficient and delivers double the energy in heat than what it actually consumes.
- Geothermal – This works similar to an air source model, except it takes the heat from the ground rather than surrounding air.
- Ductless Mini-Split Units – These are for homes that do not have traditional ductwork. Mini-splits can also be used in additions or areas of the home were extending ductwork is not possible.
Why Install a Heat Pump?
Heat pumps move heat rather than creating it, which makes them highly energy efficient. Just some benefits of using a heat pump include:
- Skipping Oil Price Issues – With a heat pump, you are no longer susceptible to oil prices. You have stable, reliable heating that is always cost-effective. You also do not have to depend on fuel delivery to stay warm in the winter.
- Increased Home Efficiency – Heat pumps are extremely efficient. According to the EPA, air-source heat pumps can reduce the electricity you use to heat your home by 30 to 40 percent.
- Reliable – A good quality heat pump is reliable and can last anywhere from 10 to 25 years with proper maintenance and care.
- Safer – Heat pumps do not use volatile or combustible materials; therefore, you do not have to worry about dangerous emissions or other hazards as the system ages.
