Heat Pumps are a type of equipment that can be a good back up to a furnace or an air conditioner because of the functionality and thus saves energy. The way a Heat Pump works is by moving cold air to places where the air is warmer, which in turn makes the cold places colder and the warm spaces warmer. The reason the functionality is more energy efficient is because the piece of equipment is not generating heat, but simply moving it along the house through electricity.
Some of the reasons you may want to get a heat pump installed in your home:
- You can save way more energy when the temperatures are blazing hot or ice cold and do not have to worry about your electricity bill rising through the roof those months.
- High-efficiency heat pumps can dehumidify your home better than a regular air conditioning system or heating system, which will provide more comfort to your home. This again will save you energy! The functionality of this is that the heat pump pulls the hot air out of your home in the summer, providing comfort in the terrible Texas heat!
- The noise levels are much quieter than a standard air conditioner or heating system as it distributes the heat evenly along the house. You will not have to call and worry about all the loud sounds and wondering if this particular sound is normal or not.
