Heat Pumps

Why use a Heat Pump System?

Most homeowners understand the basics of operating a furnace or air conditioning unit in their home. But there other alternatives to traditional heating and air conditioning systems that can significantly reduce your home energy usage and costs.

For consumers who are concerned about maximizing their energy efficiency and minimizing their impact on the Earth’s environment, heat pumps are a wise choice. Heat pumps are an environmentally friendly product. Heat pumps can supplement the output, or lower the high cost of traditional heating and cooling systems. Not only will installing heat pumps help an average homeowner save money on heating and cooling costs, but it is also a “green” choice. Environmentally friendly heat pumps lower CO2 emissions, reducing your “carbon footprint”. Hurlburt Heating can install heat pumps for your home, and help you save money and protect the earth.

Lower Operating Costs

Heat pumps operate by transferring heat from one area to another. In the summer, heat pumps can move hot air from the inside of your home, making the temperature more comfortable. In the colder months, heat pumps can draw warmth from the outdoor air and move it into the home. This technology has been used in homes for many years; for example, a refrigerator is an appliance that works much like a heat pump. Refrigerators remove heat from themselves, leaving a cooler environment for the food inside. Heat pumps can provide similar powerful heat transfer in an entire home, keeping it comfortable all year long for a lower cost than fossil fuels.

Heat pumps have been used throughout the world for many years. Recent studies have concluded that wider use of heat pumps technology can reduce global levels of CO2 dramatically. Not only are heat pumps good for the planet, they are also much cheaper to operate than traditional heating and air conditioning units. For homeowners concerned with lowering their carbon emissions, heat pumps are an excellent choice.  You can make your home more comfortable, energy-efficient and economical all year round with heat pumps installed and serviced by Hurlburt Heating & Cooling.

What about price?

Should you go for the cheapest heat pump you can get? In most cases, the answer is no. Some contractors may offer to install heat pumps at a low price, but this can come back to bite you if the heat pump is installed improperly, or it is the wrong kind of heat pump for your home. In the long run, you may find yourself paying more — a lot more — in operating and maintenance costs, unnecessary repairs and increased utility bills.
