Most homes in the Canton area are set up with an air conditioner and a separate furnace. But what if there was a way to combine the two and only have one single, energy-efficient unit that could both cool and heat your home?
There is. And it’s called a heat pump.
WHAT IS A
A heat pump is an air conditioner that can also work in reverse. In other words, in the summer it pulls heat out of your home, making the temperature in your home much cooler.
Then, during the winter months, the heat pump reverses this process. Rather than taking the heat out of your home and transporting it outside, it takes the heat from outside and puts it into your home.
WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER A
If you’re in the market for a new air conditioner or furnace, you may want to consider a heat pump for a few reasons:
More Energy Efficient. Heat pumps can be up to 400% more efficient. That means for each unit of energy used, they move up to four units of heat.
Reliable. The technology in heat pumps is not new. They’ve been around for a long time and can last as long as a good air conditioner (up to 10-15 years.)
Environmentally Friendly. Unlike gas furnaces, heat pumps to do not burn anything or directly release carbon emissions. They only use a small amount of electrical energy to move heat.
