Heat Pumps are a great alternative for traditional heating and cooling systems. Heat pumps provide a central system that is energy efficient and less invasive to install than traditional heating and cooling systems. Heat pumps move heat rather than generating heat, so they do not require fuel and they provide equivalent space heating and conditioning at a fourth of the cost of operating conventional heating and cooling appliances. Heat pumps use a compressor to absorb heat energy in the air and circulate it between the outdoors and indoors, like traditional refrigerant systems. The heat pump system extracts natural heat energy in the air and moves it inside when it is cold outside. When it is warm outside then it reverses the process and removes the heat from inside, like a traditional air conditioner. While using a heat pump system you will save 30% over current consumption and equipment costs of propane and you will save 20% over current consumption and equipment costs of natural gas. Some features people love about heat pump systems are the less invasiveness of the interior installation, self modulating, improved air quality with electrostatic air filter that absorbs dust, mold spores, and microorganisms, with ion deodorization, one outdoor unit provides for multiple indoor units, compressors and motors are in an outside unit to provide a quiet indoor environment, and more!
