Investing in a heat pump for your Palm City, FL home is a smart move. Heat pumps are perfect for milder climates like we have here in Florida. They offer numerous benefits to you as the homeowner. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why you want a heat pump and how it will cool your home.
How Does a Heat Pump Work?
Heat pumps use electricity to move air. They constantly take warm air and move or transfer it to where it is needed or, in the case of the hot summer months, where it is not wanted. Even in the cool months of winter, there is heat energy in the outside air, and the heat pump takes this energy and brings it to the inside. In the summer, the heat pump acts like an air conditioner and moves the warm inside air to the outside.
Heat Pumps Are Energy-Efficient
Heat pumps use much less electricity than a standard air conditioner or furnace because they are not actually generating hot or cold air but only transferring it. Heat pumps also dehumidify inside air better than an air conditioner. This means less electricity is used in the cooling process. You will see lower electric bills with a heat pump and your home will be consistently cool and comfortable.
Only One System to Maintain
You only have one unit to maintain because the heat pump acts as both an air conditioner and heater. Our technicians will come out and service just the one unit instead of having the furnace maintained as well as the air conditioner. Investing in an Energy Savings Agreement with us will help to ensure that in the spring the heat pump is functioning in the air conditioning mode, and in the fall, we will make sure the reversing valve is set properly and the heating system is ready to go.
