DO HEAT PUMPS SAVE MONEY IN WINTER? LET’S CHECK IT OUT

Winter is nearing soon, and so does the chill, shivering and fog, too. Heat pumps are a great option to look forward to in winter for heating. Sometimes there is confusion among house owners as to whether a heat pump can save money or not. Well! No need to stay doubtful as heat pump repair service will help you clear your doubts here in this blog.

What is a Heat Pump?

Well! This is a unit which is pretty helpful and useful and is capable of cooling and heating the home in both summer and winter.

It is somewhat similar to an air conditioner but uses an air handler for moving air all through your home. So a heat pump works by moving warm air from one place to another. In cold season, it flows warm air inside the home, whereas in summer, it moves the warm air out of your home.

Now Do Heat Pumps Save Money?

A heat pump uses more electricity in comparison to a furnace and AC system as it both heats up and cools down the home. Still, you can save money on fuel consumption in the winter.

Besides this, heat pumps are more expensive to install in comparison to an air conditioning system as it is a 2-in-1 system. Now this will make the unit run costing you around $ 5,000 to $ 7,000 majorly depending on the factors like size and efficiency of the system. On the other hand, efficiency of the unit is measured in SEER value, so higher the SEER value, the more efficient the unit.  

So, now this can be concluded that overall savings rely upon what your heating and cooling preferences are in winter and summer. However, still, you can have savings on energy bills in the cold season if you use a thermostat at a fair temperature. Another way to lower your electric bill is to have a blower motor that works at a variable speed and can be installed either in a furnace or an air handler.
