How Heat Pumps Work
When looking for a new heating and cooling system for your home, you might not immediately think of a heat pump. However, heat pumps can solve both your heating and cooling needs. These systems compress and decompress gas to cool or heat your home. During winter, the heat pump extracts heat from the groundwater or air to warm your home. In the summer months, the system pumps heat out of your home to cool it off.
Benefits of Installing a Heat Pump
There are many advantages to installing a heat pump in your home. Some of the benefits include:
- Energy-efficiency: Because heat pumps use a renewable energy source they are highly efficient. This can result in lower utility bills.
- Incentives: Because heat pumps are energy-efficient, you can potentially receive a renewable heat incentive from the government. This can give you a monetary bonus and will also diminish your carbon footprint.
- Improved air quality: Heat pumps can improve the indoor air quality in your home. These systems don’t create smoke or add any fumes to your house. Also, the filters purify the air while removing dust, mold spores, odors, dirt and other particles.

- Climate control: Heat pumps allow you to have maximum control over your home’s climate.
- Tax rebates: You might qualify for possible tax rebates by installing a heat pump.

What Makes Heat Pumps Energy-Efficient?
One of the advantages of installing a heat pump system in your home is its energy-efficiency capabilities. But what makes heat pumps energy-efficient? Some of the reasons include:
- Heat pumps move heat instead of generating it. Because of this, their operating costs can be as little as 25 percent of the cost to operate a traditional heating or cooling system.
- Heat pumps only use a small amount of electricity to transfer hot and cold air.
- Heat pumps let you change the temperature in a room, or even switch from heating to cooling, by pushing a button.
- Heat pumps only take a few minutes to cool or heat a room.
