Looking for an economical way to heat and cool your Pelahatchie, Mississippi, home? Here are four reasons to install a heat pump this fall:
Delivers Energy-Efficient Heating
Heat pumps provide an energy-efficient way to heat homes located in mild climates. They utilize less energy than a traditional air conditioner and furnace, resulting in lower utility bills.
According to the Department of Energy, choosing a heat pump instead of a furnace to heat your home can reduce your energy usage by up to 50 percent. This amounts to a huge cost savings that quickly adds up. As a result, you’ll quickly recoup some of your initial installation expense.
Better for the Environment
Opting for heat pump installation will reduce your carbon footprint. That’s because heat pumps use less energy than furnaces to operate.
This is an easy way to help the environment that won’t affect your comfort levels in any way. To further reduce your carbon footprint, change the air filter regularly and have the system professionally serviced annually. You should aim to change the filter every 30 to 90 days.
Also Cools Your Home
Don’t let the name fool you. Heat pumps both heat and cool. They’re two-in-one systems that keep your home comfortable year-round.
In the winter, heat pumps remove warmth from the outdoor air and pump the it inside to heat your home. The process reverses in the summer when heat pumps remove the warmth from your home’s interior air and send it outside, cooling your home. Heat pumps also act as dehumidifiers, removing moisture and maintaining the correct humidity levels in your home.
Safer than Combustion-Based Systems
Thanks to the way they heat and cool, heat pumps are safer than combustion-based systems. Heat pumps warm your home simply by moving air around, unlike combustion-based systems that actually burn fuel to create heat. Since heat pumps don’t burn fuel, you don’t have to worry about carbon monoxide leaks. As a result, you can rest easy knowing your family’s health and safety isn’t in danger.
