How can a heat pump benefit you during the spring?
We don’t know how the weather has been in your town, but in the Midwest we have already been able to enjoy spring-like temperatures. And, while we all have warmer weather on the brain, it’s a good time to start thinking about preventative maintenance and/or replacing your current HVAC system before the summer cooling season begins.
If you are planning on purchasing a replacement cooling system this year, make sure you explore all of your options. You may know that some cooling systems are more efficient than others, but did you know that there is a completely separate system available for installation in your home? This system is called the heat pump.
Heat pumps are particularly beneficial during weather like the Midwest has been experiencing over the past couple of weeks – frequent swings from cold to hot and back again. That is because heat pumps apply the principles of heat transfer to heat AND cool your home using electricity. This is different from heat creation and can use less energy than other electric heating methods. Seasonal transitions can be hard on home comfort – you don’t want to keep yo-yoing between your gas furnace and air conditioner.
If you are interested in exploring your heat pump options, make sure you contact your local heating and air conditioning contractor. They will be able to look at your particular home and tell you whether a heat pump is the right solution to your HVAC equipment needs.
Are you interested in a heat pump for your home?
I like that you mention that you that because heat pumps cool and heat the house with electricity, they’re good options for areas that fluctuate between cold and warm weather frequently. I’m from an area where the fall and spring weather is really unpredictable, so it would be nice to have a system that could keep up with the changing weather. It’s nice to know that using a heat pump would save on energy.
