Heat pumps can provide an energy-efficient substitute for furnaces and air conditioners in moderate heating and cooling climates. A pumping system, similar to a refrigerator, utilizes electricity to transfer heat from a cold area to a warm one, or vice versa. This means that during the winter, heat pumps transfer heat from the cool outdoors into your home and during the summer, these pumps move excess heat from inside your home to the outdoors.
Since these air-based heat pumps are only moving heat and not actually generating it, they can cut your total electricity use by as much as 40%.
These high efficiency pumps also de-humidify more effectively than standard central air conditioning systems. This means that you will use far less energy while also achieving a more comfortable home.
The only downfall of these systems is that they are not suitable for areas of extreme high or low temperatures. In such circumstances, the efficiency of these heat pumps drops dramatically. Still, there are certain models that are up for the challenge, like geothermal heat pumps. These systems transfer heat between your home and the earth (not the air), taking full advantage of the relatively continual ground temperature.
While geothermal heat pumps are expensive to install, they traditionally have lower operating costs.
