Should I Heat My Home with a Heat Pump?

heat-pumpThat’s not really a question that we can answer definitively. There is no single heating system that is right for every home or for every homeowner. What we can tell you is that you should at least weigh your options and consider the heat pump and its benefits carefully. There may not be a single heating system that’s right for everyone—but the heat pump sure is right for a lot of homeowners!

We’ll dive into what makes the heat pump such a fan favorite in today’s post. But first, a quick reminder. You can spend your money on the best systems and equipment in town, but that doesn’t guarantee a great performance from those systems and equipment. To enjoy the best that any heat pump has to offer, you need to schedule your heat pump services with skilled, trained professionals.  Leave your heat pump services in Fort Wayne to our team in order to do so.

Heat Pumps Don’t Just Heat

First things first, a heat pump is very much a two-in-one system. Basically, a heat pump is an air conditioner that can reverse its operation. It does this by reversing its refrigerant cycle.

During the summer, the heat pump cools your home just like a central AC would. It evaporates refrigerant indoors, which draws heat out of the air. That refrigerant is then condensed outdoors, releasing heat into the air outside. That process continues until the desired temperature is met in your home.

Then, in the winter, the cycle reverses. Your system evaporates refrigerant in the air outside, in order to draw heat out of it. There is always thermal energy in the air, even when it’s cold out. It compresses the refrigerant, boosting its thermal energy, and then releases that heat indoors by condensing it in the indoor coil.

That’s Not Just Convenient—It’s Efficient

One of the greatest benefits of using a heat pump is just how efficient the system is at heating homes. Not only do you get great convenience, but you’ll also save money on heating your house. This is thanks to the system’s leveraging of the heat transfer process.

Because your heat pump is not burning fuel to generate new heat, but instead just uses a small amount of electricity in order to transfer existing heat into the house, very little energy is used in the process. That results in very affordable operating costs, a benefit that anyone can get behind!
