Energy Efficiency of a Heat Pump

Heat pumps are known for being highly energy efficient. When it comes to cooling, they are very comparable to a central air conditioner. Investing in a high efficiency model will boost your energy savings—especially during the wintertime. 

Heat pumps are much more efficient at heating compared to other types of heaters. Both gas and electric furnaces have to create heat using heating elements or an open flame. Creating that much heat uses a lot of energy. A heat pump works by transferring heat from outside your home into your home, which uses far less energy.

The Potential to Save Space

Since a heat pump is an all-in-one heating and cooling solution, you stand to save some space over having separate units. If you have a separate air conditioner and heater, each unit needs its own space. That could mean you have two closets dedicated to your HVAC units.

A heat pump only needs the space of a single HVAC unit, so you can win back the closet space of at least one system. If you want to take it a step further, you can invest in a ductless heat pump. This would eliminate the need for any type of central indoor unit, plus you could eliminate the attached ductwork. If you have a smaller home, a ductless system might be the solution you are looking for.

Potential Savings

We already talked about the energy efficiency of a heat pump, which translates into savings on energy costs. But there are other ways that you can save, too. If you have a separate heater and air conditioner, you have to replace each of those different units every 10 to 15 years. With a heat pump doing the job of both, you only have to replace one single unit every 10 to 15 years.

This can save you thousands of dollars. Plus, heat pumps are easier to maintain, especially compared to gas furnaces. If you have a gas furnace and replace it with a heat pump, you could save money on maintenance and repairs over the life of the unit.
