Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as 25 percent of the cost of operating a conventional heating or cooling appliances.
Heat pumps have been dramatically increasing in popularity over the past few years. Not only do they offer high energy efficiency ratings, but they also provide numerous practical, convenient, and environmentally friendly benefits that ownership and installation can bring.
Your comfort is one of the most important benefits a heat pump can offer. And by having one in your home, you are in control. A heat pump provides you with the ability to easily control and maintain your climate to your own preferred levels.
More and more homeowners choose heat pumps over central air for a number of reasons that include:
- Lower operational costs
- Less maintenance
- Lower carbon emissions
- Heating and cooling for your home
