Installing new HVAC equipment in your home is a big decision and one that can be difficult to make alone. When you contact Ditter, we’ll discuss what you’re looking for in a new HVAC system and help you make a decision that’s best for your family, your home, and, of course, your budget.
Heating and Cooling in One Unit
Heat pumps are unique in that they provide both heating and cooling for year-round comfort. In the summer, heat pumps operate similarly to air conditioners, as they remove warm air from the home and distribute it outside. In the winter, the flow of refrigerant is reversed. Even when the air is cold outside, there is still warmth that can be extracted from the outside air.
Increased Energy Efficiency and Lower Utility Bills
Heat pumps are extremely energy efficient, especially during the winter because they don’t need natural gas to generate heat. Instead, they use electricity and the warmth found in the air outside. Because of this, homeowners can save a significant amount of money on their monthly energy bills. According to energy.gov, heat pumps can reduce the use of electricity for heating purposes by as much as 50% compared to furnaces and baseboard heaters.
Heat pumps don’t use fossil fuels such as oil, propane or natural gas as a heat source, making them incredibly environmentally friendly. Installing a heat pump is a quick way to improve your home’s carbon footprint.
Heat pumps are one of the quietest heating and cooling systems on the market. If you’re tired of your air conditioner or furnace making a racket, consider switching over to a heat pump.
Improved Air Quality
Since heat pumps don’t rely on fossil fuels for heating, you’ll notice improved indoor air quality. There are no combustion products or fumes that could potentially enter your home’s air supply due to a furnace malfunction.
