For many years, homeowners get their home comfort by using ducted heating and cooling systems. However, in a typical American home, about 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through the ductwork is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ductwork. As a result, there is the inevitable rise in utility bills and inconsistent temperatures throughout the house.
On the other hand, heat pumps provide a more efficient way of heating and cooling your home. During winter, it provides warmth not by converting electricity directly into heat, but rather by taking in the heat from the atmosphere or ground, multiplying it and then transferring the heat to your home.
These heating and cooling systems are increasing in popularity because of the benefits they offer.
A reliable HVAC company like Kettle Moraine Heating and Air Conditioning can help you upgrade to a heat pump that can provide a more effective way of improving your home comfort.
In partnership with Lennox Industries, we offer a wide variety of innovative heat pumps you can choose from.
Benefits of Heat Pumps
A more comfortable environment
Heat pumps automatically adjust to maintain your preferred room temperatures.
Multiple heat distribution options
Space heating can be delivered through any mixture of underfloor heating and low temperature radiators.
Lower utility bills
A correctly installed heat pump can be 3 to 4 times more efficient. This means for 1 unit of electricity, you can generate over 3 to 4 units of heat.
These systems do not depend on variable levels of sunlight or wind.
Lower carbon footprint
These systems use a refrigerant called R410A, which is known for its zero ozone exhaustion potential. A home with a heat pump installed has less impact on the environment throughout its life cycle.
Having these benefits in mind, and if you’re looking into staying in your current home for many years, a heat pump can be a good piece of investment.
