Heat Pump Systems
The Heat Pump System is a two-piece system, which consists of an electric heating unit (inside unit) and a heat pump (outside unit). The outdoor unit will run in the winter season. The thermostat will have an emergency heat selection on it. Also available in self-contained package units.
- Heat Pump Systems are more consistent as far as energy consumption is concerned. Both heating and cooling are generated from the outdoor heat pump system so its annual energy usage averages out to provide 4 times more savings. That’s a lot of $$$$back in your pocket.
- If you heat with electricity, a heat pump can reduce the amount of electricity you use by 30% to 40%. Heat Pump Air handlers or furnaces have electrical resistance heat elements which act as a supplemental heating source on extremely cold days and nights. They also can act as emergency heat if your heat pump system is not working properly.
- There are other types of heat pumps available such as geothermal (ground source or water source) which transfer heat at extremely high-efficiency ratings. Although they cost more to buy and install, they have lower operating costs than conventional heat pump or air conditioning systems.
