Because they use less fuel, they also create less waste. When paired with alternative energy sources like solar panels or wind turbines, they can operate with barely any carbon footprint at all.
They Cost Less
Obviously, using less fuel leads to lower utility bills. Saving 12 months a year is something most homeowners smile about. You save, too, by installing a heat pump instead of other kinds of equipment. By choosing a system that heats and cools, you’re forgoing the expense of purchasing a separate furnace and air conditioner. You’re saving the expense of maintaining and repairing those two systems as well.
Heat pumps can be used in any environment and any climate. Whether or not they are the best system for you depends on your local conditions however, so it’s important to talk to an HVAC professional. Don’t be afraid to consider heat pumps, however. Though they’re just starting to get attention, they aren’t a new invention. They’re well-tested and can go a long way in cutting pollution, as well as your monthly bills.
