Heat Pumps: Year-Round Savings
Ductless heat pumps are the perfect addition to any Connecticut home, providing year-round comfort with year-round savings!
Sound too good to be true? Read on to find out how installing a heat pump could benefit you.
What are heat pumps anyway?
Heat pumps are great comfort options that provide easy adjustments throughout the in-between-season months, like April. They can care for all your comfort needs, shifting from warm to cool air based on the weather outside.
By transferring thermal energy, heat pumps use electricity to turn cold air warm, or vice versa. This transfer of energy is far more efficient than burning fuel; thus, a heat pump can greatly reduce your annual energy expenses.
How can heat pumps be used for every season?
Heat pumps aren’t just valuable for the transition between months. In winter, they can help supplement your heating system by warming your home with the air outside without using the fuel in your tank.
A hybrid heating system has been shown to work at maximum efficiency by combining a warm air furnace or boiler with a heat pump. During the cold snaps, the boiler or furnace will do the heavy lifting, as usual. However, when the temperatures are milder, a heat pump will take over to reduce fuel usage and provide more efficient heat. You can even install a smart system that automatically switches between the two, so you can relax knowing it’s taken care of.
The perks don’t stop there… Heat pumps can replace your air conditioner altogether; with the flip of a switch, you can go from heating to cooling, providing you with the best of both worlds!
