A heat pump can be a great way to save on energy if you live in a moderate climate like Chattanooga or Oolewah. Read on to learn more.
How do heat pumps work?
Heat moves downhill. What this means is that heat moves from a location with a high temperature to a location with a low temperature.
The heat pump reverses this process. It pulls heat from a low temperature area and pumps it into a high temperature area, as in the case of heating a home.
What are the benefits of this system?
One of the greatest benefits is that heat pumps are a more sustainable way to heat your home. They use much less energy than other heating systems, so they create less pollution.
Heat pumps can help you save on your utility bill as well, more so than using an electric or gas furnace. The latter units use energy to create warmth. This requires a great deal of power, which is reflected on your monthly bill.
A heat pump only requires a fraction of the energy needed by furnaces to heat a home, leading to savings of 30%-40%. Because heat pumps require additional energy to work when temperatures get extremely cold, they are better suited for these environments.
Heat pumps also offer more even distribution of warm air. This means reduced cold spots in your home. They also turn on and off less frequently.
What are the energy efficient features?
Heat pumps use very little electricity. Because they are merely moving air rather than heating or cooling it, they are one of the most energy efficient utility solutions on the market.
These systems also have an added advantage over air conditioners. They can be used to bring cool air into your home in the summer, and they can also dehumidify that air much more efficiently than electric or gas air conditioners.
A new type of heat pump, called an absorption heat pump, features even more increased energy efficiency. The absorption model uses heat as its energy source, rather than electricity, adding to the energy savings.
What are some common problems with these systems?
Heat pumps are not efficient in climates where temperatures reach below freezing. In these areas, they can still heat the home but require increased energy to do so, cancelling out the savings you would reap.
These systems also provide less intense heat than a furnace. When a heat pump is used during colder weather, it may require a supplemental energy source, which is an added expense for you.
