Better Understanding Your Heat Pump
Heat pumps work in a similar way to air conditioners. They essentially replace warm air with cold air, or cold air with warm air, depending on the temperatures outside.
The main difference between an air conditioner and a heat pump is the way the air is moved, condensed or rarefied. Traditional HVAC systems use energy to heat or cool the air being pumped into the home, a heat pump simply transfers heating energy from one location to the other.
Less energy is used this way which makes heat pumps more energy-efficient.
There are two types of heat pumps.
- Air Source: This type of heat pump uses the outdoor air temperature to enact change inside by passing the outdoor air over refrigerant containers to lower the temperature.
- Ground Water Source: This type of pump utilizes the stable below-surface ground temperature to change the temperature inside.
What are the Benefits?
These units are gaining popularity with homeowners for many reasons. Some of the most obvious benefits to installing a heat pump include:
- Savings: Unlike traditional heaters, heat pumps do not use energy (oil or gas) to heat the air being pumped into your home. This means they use less energy to operate and therefore cost less in monthly heating bills.
- Environmentally friendly: Heat pumps are environmentally friendly since they use less fuel to operate and release fewer emissions which will help toward protecting our planet for generations to come.
- Fewer repairs: These systems are simple in design. This means that they break down less often and typically require fewer repairs over time. For homeowners who experience frequent repairs with furnaces and heaters, this could lead to significant savings throughout the year.
- Con-Ed: at this time Con-Ed is aiming to lower the demand for natural gas through energy efficiency alternative technologies that reduce natural gas usage, such as heat pumps.
