Should You Invest in a Heat Pump For Your Home?

Feb 22, 2019

Valentine’s Day may have passed, but here at Anderson, we want to keep the love going all February long — and the first place to start is in your home! By being more energy conscious, you can show your home the love and care it deserves by considering a heat pump!

When it comes to heating and cooling systems, most of us are a little fuzzy on how they actually work. As a result, many homeowners are pretty unaware that they have more options than they realize.

Now you may have heard the term heat pump before, but in San Diego, this nifty piece of heating and cooling equipment can save you energy, and provide a comfortable home temperature year round. That’s a win-win if you ask us!

The Basics

A heat pump is an energy saving alternative to a traditional gas home heating system. While others burn gas, a heat pump works by transferring heat (hence why it’s energy efficient) and runs on electricity. So how does it work? Well, the air is cycled through your air ducts and passed over coils that contain cold liquid refrigerant. As the air passes over, it’s warmed or cooled, depending on the time of year.

Two For The Price Of One

Like we said above, although it is called a heat pump, it heats and cools and works all year round! With one installation you can cool and heat your home with ease and save on energy costs.

Bonus: they have a long lifespan, too. With the right care, they can last for 15-20 years and maintenance is often minimal.

Better For The Environment

If your other home appliances are less than 15 years of age, chances are they are energy efficient — so why shouldn’t your heating and cooling system be as well? By using electricity instead of gas, you are reducing your carbon footprint. And your professional HVAC technician will make sure you have the right size equipment to be the most energy efficient for your home size and configuration. And you’ll save money in the long run!
