When you think of heat pumps, what comes to your mind? (Probably not too much.) Unless you’re a professional, heating and cooling options aren’t typical conversation topics, so here’s what you no one is telling you about heat pumps.
What No One Is Telling You About Heat Pumps
Heat pumps can cool your home too.
Contrary to their name, heat pumps are not only used to heat homes. They can also cool air to provide comfort during the summer months by switching between the heating and cooling process throughout the year.
Heat pumps can act as dehumidifiers.
Since they can cool your home as well, heat pumps can act as dehumidifiers. Remember – high humidity levels are not only uncomfortable but can also cause damage to your home and health.
Heat pumps are highly energy efficient.
When it comes to keeping your heating and cooling costs low, heat pumps are a great option. Since they work by using different air temperatures, they use, on average, 50% less energy than window AC units. This can significantly lower your energy bill and help save you money month over month.
Heat pumps are ideal for open floor plans.
If your home consists of open spaces, heat pumps can easily circulate air around it. While they may not be ideal for larger homes with a lot of rooms and tighter spaces, they can be a good option for smaller homes.
