If you are thinking of having a heat pump installed in your home, you’re in good company. This piece of equipment has grown in popularity over the last few years because they’re not only energy efficient, but they’re also convenient and friendly to the environment. The Longwood technicians with Service One want to share some information with you regarding the benefits of heat pumps.
They Can Be Used for Heating and Cooling
A heat pump can increase the temperature of a room very quickly, but it can also extract heat from the inside of your home and transfer it to the outside, just like your refrigerator. You can easily control the comfort of your home; many models come with remote control units. Florida is a great place to use heat pumps since it typically does not get bitterly cold for extended periods of time.
They’re Safe, and they Improve Indoor Air Quality
A heat pump does not use flames, such as gas-heating furnaces. You won’t burn yourself if you touch one and you can leave it all on night without having to worry about a potentially dangerous gas leak. It does not add fumes to your indoor air, and its filters clean and purify the air circulating through your home.
They Save Space and are Energy Efficient
Heat pumps are typically small enough so that they don’t take up valuable space, and they are an extremely cost effective method of heating a home. Most models have a Coefficient of Performance, or COP, rating of four. This means that it uses an average of about one kilowatt of electricity to provide four kilowatts of heating or cooling power. A heat pump can help save you substantial money over the long term.
