With the variations in outside temperature, you need to control the temperature of your home. Heat pumps are an effective temperature regulation system which moves heat from one area to another area in your home. Thus, a heat pump can effectively control the heating and cooling effect in your home. During the summer a heat pump pulls the heat from your home and sends it outside to keep your home cool. Thus, they are energy-efficient somewhat similar to an air-conditioning system and come with a bucket list of benefits. Let’s explore the proven benefits of a heat pump.

Proven Benefits of a heat pump

Cost-effective
A heating pump is a cost-effective heating system which can help you to reduce your electric heating costs. The cost of electricity in Canada is high. But a heat pump will consume only one kWh of electricity to produce around 3.3 kWh of heat. Thus by using a heat pump in your home, you can expect at least a 50% reduction in your electric heating costs. Another added advantage is the reduction of carbon emissions by using a heat pump. You can also avoid furnace repair and save on furnace servicing charges after installing a heat pump.

Dual functionality
One of the major advantages of using a heat pump in your home is its dual functionality. It functions similarly like an air-conditioner. During winter months it fulfils the heating requirement and during summers, it pulls out the warm air out and keeps your room cool.

Environment-friendly
Heat Pumps use electricity to operate, hence it is the best option especially for customers who do not have access to natural gas outlets and are forced to use conventional fuel sources like oil or propane which in the long run tend to be more expensive because they have to be delivered to the unit. Thus switching to Heat Pumps will help elliminate carbon monoxide leaking problems keeping your health and environment safe.

Heat pumps are also a great way for customers to realize real operational savings and better comfort over a traditional purely resistive type of electrical heating systems like baseboards or electric forced air furnaces where the power to heat produced ratio is 1:1 instead of the potential 1:3 relationship that can be realized with a heat pump.

The life span of a heat pump is around fifteen years. Maintenance is easy, and it’s not costly at all. So, install a heat pump in your home and enjoy its proven benefits.
