Heat Pumps Provide Efficient Comfort Throughout the Year
Are you looking for an efficient way to keep your Atlanta, GA, home comfortable year-round? A new heat pump might be what you’re looking for. They’re one of the most versatile and efficient HVAC equipment options that provide heating and cooling. Learn more below about how heat pumps and why they’re a good choice for your home.
How Heat Pumps Work
The first thing you should know about heat pumps is that they don’t generate heat or cold air like furnaces and air conditioners. Instead, heat pumps draw in air from outside when heating the home and move hot interior air out when conditioning the air.
Two heat pump systems are available, air-source and ground-source. The most popular heat pump system for Atlanta homeowners is an air-source heat pump which can be used with your existing ductwork.
Why Heat Pumps Are More Efficient
Most heat pump manufacturers estimate that homeowners will use 40% less electricity when switching from a traditional HVAC system. The reason for such significant savings is that the heat pump uses very little electricity. It also doesn’t require a fuel source like natural gas or propane to heat the air.
Want to save even more money? Ground-source heat pumps, also called geothermal heat pumps, draw energy from the ground. Since the ground temperature below the frost line stays the same year-round, you always have consistent heating and cooling with lower operating costs — up to 60% lower. However, geothermal systems can cost between $10,000 and $45,000, making them unaffordable for most homeowners who don’t have the option to roll the costs into a new construction mortgage.
