Why Get a Heat Pump? Benefits and Advantages

Have you been thinking about getting a heat pump?

There are lots of benefits and advantages to switch your home over to a heat pump:

  • Heat pumps both heat and cool your home. One device does it all. Heating can be up to 300% more efficient than other heating methods! And cooling can be twice as efficient as regular air conditioners!
  • Greater efficiency will save you money! You can save up to 50% on your heating bills by using a heat pump, as opposed to oil or gas furnaces, air conditioners and even heating with wood!
  • Greater efficiency means that a heat pump is environmentally friendly. Go green and save money too!
  • Improve the air quality in your home! Heat pumps clean the air of dirt, dust, pollen and many other allergens.


Is a Heat Pump the Right Choice for You?

Aside from clean, efficient heating and cooling, saving money and being more environmentally friendly, is getting a heat pump the right choice for you and your family?

Switching over to a heat pump can be a lot easier and cheaper than many people think. In an existing home with forced air ducts, a ducted system may be the right choice. In a new home, or one with baseboard heating, a ductless system may work best. If your existing furnace and air conditioning needs to be replaced, or soon will be, switching to a heat pump now can make a lot of sense. Are you adding on to your house? Renovating an attic or basement? A ductless mini split might be the way to go.

What Type of Pump Will Be Best for Your Situation?

Ducted Heat Pumps

A ducted heat pump has an outdoor unit connected to an interior unit. The heat is distributed from the unit using air ducts or vents into each room, much like a forced air furnace you may already be familiar with.

Ductless Heat Pumps

A ductless system has an outdoor unit, but can have one or more interior units. Ductless heat pumps can be installed pretty much anywhere, depending on your interior design demands. Ductless systems allow room temperatures to be set to individually around the house.
