Heat pumps are known for their efficiency, but that’s not the only enhancement they offer. Take a look at the cards below to discover additional benefits.
By steadily maintaining your home’s ideal temperature, a heat pump avoids hot and cold temperature fluctuations.
A heat pump can be customized to your home’s specific layout and needs, eliminating temperature swings between spaces so every room remains comfortable. And when you upgrade your gas furnace with a dual fuel heat pump, you’ll have a backup to effectively heat and cool your home in any climate conditions.
The type of heat pump you choose will be based on your existing system, home’s layout, and your current and future needs. Here’s a quick look at the available options.
With a dual fuel system, you can switch between an electric heat pump and a gas or oil furnace depending on the outdoor temperature. The heat pump is more efficient in milder weather, while the furnace provides reliable heat in colder weather. Get started by reaching out to a trade ally to see if this is a good option for your home and to get help with installation and rebates.
If you’re wondering if your HVAC system needs to be replaced, there are a few signs to look out for. If your system is more than 10-15 years old, it may be time for a replacement. You should also consider replacing your system if you notice a significant decrease in its efficiency, such as higher energy bills or longer run times. Or, you may notice frequent breakdowns, strange noises or smells, and uneven heating or cooling throughout your home. For additional help, you can work with a knowledgeable trade ally.
If you only need to heat or cool a single room, a ductless heat pump may be a good option. These systems are efficient, and a trade ally can help you choose and install one. Trade allies can also help you find available rebates.
If you need a new HVAC system right away, it’s important to consult with a trade ally who can assess your needs and recommend the right system for you. They can also help you with the installation process, ensure your new system works properly and secure available rebates on efficient equipment.
It’s a good idea to keep an eye out for any early signs that your existing HVAC system might be breaking down, such as unusual noises or decreased efficiency. Consulting with a trade ally can help you figure out what type of system would work best for your home and ensure you are ready to replace your HVAC system when the time comes.
Congratulations! A heat pump – whether ductless, air source or dual fuel – can be a great investment to increase your home’s efficiency and provide year-round comfort. For example, in the winter, a heat pump can extract heat from the outside air and bring it inside to warm your home. In the summer, it can remove heat from your home and send it outside to keep you cool. Heat pumps use filters to improve your indoor air quality and produce no on-site emissions. Talk with a trade ally to learn if a heat pump is a good fit for your home and ask about available rebates.
Installing a heat pump in your home can make it more attractive to potential buyers, as it’s an efficient way to heat and cool a space. According to a 2020 study, adding a heat pump can increase the value of a home by up to $17,000 in nearly half of U.S. states. It can also be a selling point for buyers who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint. A trade ally can help you choose and install a heat pump that qualifies for rebates, which can make your home even more appealing to buyers.
Heat pumps are a great way to upscale your rental property because they provide both heating and cooling and can accommodate a variety of building structures. Plus, with proper care, heat pumps can have a longer lifespan than traditional HVAC systems, which means you’ll have fewer maintenance and replacement costs over time. Also, they don’t produce any on-site combustion byproducts, which can help improve your community’s outdoor air quality. Reach out to a trade ally to find out how you might qualify for rebates.
