Here’s Why We Think Heat Pumps Are Awesome!

If you own a heat pump, then consider yourself lucky. Not only are these systems extremely efficient and effective, but they’re also capable of keeping your home nice and comfortable all year long with just the flip of a switch! (Don’t worry, we’ll talk more about that later.) In fact, we can’t see any reason why you wouldn’t want one of these systems in your home.

It’s quite clear that we think heat pumps are awesome, and in case you are wondering why, we’ve explained it all for you down below. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more (and of course, remember to schedule your heating services in Colorado Springs with us!)

The Basics

A heat pump works much like a traditional air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what makes the difference between a standard AC and a heat pump is the reversing valve, which is used to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system.

“Why would anyone want to do that?” you ask.

Well, you see, reversing the flow of refrigerant through the system allows for home heating in addition to cooling. That’s right: with just one system, you can both heat and cool your home!

The Benefits

There are plenty of benefits to installing a heat pump in your home. These benefits include:

  • Better Efficiency: Heat pumps are one of the most energy-efficient HVAC systems on the market today. This is because they do not generate their own heat, but rather move it from one place to another. Switching to a heat pump is a great way to conserve energy and cut back on monthly spending.
  • Versatility: With just the flip of a switch, you’ll be able to enjoy year-round comfort! The reversing valve allows you to switch between “heating mode” and “cooling mode”, so no matter the temperature outside, you’ll be nice and comfortable inside!
  • Cost and Convenience: When you invest in a heat pump, you will no longer have to worry about the cost of maintaining two different HVAC systems, as a heat pump eliminates the need to own both an air conditioner and a heater.

Want One? Great!

If you are interested in installing a heat pump in your home, then be sure to contact a certified HVAC professional for help! Only a professional has the training and expertise to match you with the system that is going to best meet your unique comfort needs.

And, of course, there might be plenty of amateurs willing to lend a helping hand, but remember, an attempt to save money can end up costing you a lot more in the long run. It is better to call in a pro and get the job done right the first time around.
