An electric heat pump is the most energy-efficient home heating and cooling option available today, providing heating equal to three times the amount of electricity consumed. An electric heat pump system can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency, reduce your energy consumption, and help you save money on your utilities.
An electric heat pump serves a dual purpose—it functions as your home’s primary heating and cooling system. There are two types of electric heat pumps to consider:
- Air-source heat pumps work by transferring heat between the inside of your house and the outside air. Whether you’re upgrading to something more efficient or replacing a wornout furnace or air conditioner, you’ll find that air source heat pumps are an economical choice that provide year-round savings.
- Geothermal heat pumps take advantage of the earth’s constant temperature by circulating a water-based solution through pipes buried in the ground. This method of heating and cooling your home is environmentally friendly, reliable, quiet, comfortable, and cost effective; it is also the most energy-efficient solution available. There are significant tax credits available for installing geothermal systems.
