What Benefits Can a Heat Pump Provide?

Heat pumps are known for being an extremely green and environmentally friendly option. While there are plenty of advantages to switching to a heat pump, some worth mentioning include:

  • Both heating and cooling from one system
  • Greater energy efficiency
  • Decreased utility bills
  • Quieter operation
  • Consistent airflow
  • Reduced carbon footprint

Heat Pump Installation and Replacement in Ashland

Convinced it’s time to add a heat pump to your newly purchased home? Our NATE-certified professionals can walk you through the process, all the way from selecting the type of heat pump for your home to installing it and ensuring it works as efficiently as possible.

There are three main types of heat pumps:

  • Air-source heat pumps: Air-source heat pumps are the most popular of all heat pumps. These provide heating by pulling warm air from the cold outside and moving it into your home. A heat pump works like an air conditioner in the summer months, drawing warm air from your home.
  • Water-source heat pumps: You’ll need to live near a body of water—like a pond or lake—to have a water-source heat pump installed. Water-source heat pumps can provide comfort with the help of the water’s consistently warm temperature. An underground closed-looped system working with a heat exchanger keeps you cozy on the coldest of days.
  • Ground-source heat pumps: These are also known as geothermal systems and work by extracting and transferring heat to and from below the ground’s surface. The temperature a few feet below the surface is consistent underground, so you never have to worry about the outdoor temperature. Geothermal heat pumps are considered the most environmentally friendly systems on the market today. Be sure to ask about tax credits that offset the installation costs.

Whichever heat pump you decide on, know our Howell’s Heating & Air professionals are with you every step of the way. Don’t forget to ask about financing.

How Much Money Can a New Heat Pump Save You?

Our SEER energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Just enter your current unit's SEER value and compare it to a newer, more efficient system. You can even customize it to better match your home's system for a more accurate calculation.
