Forced-air furnaces are a staple of many homes in the area, relying on burning gas pushed through a heat exchanger to warm your home. However, there are many different heating system options available, and you needn’t be bound to it if another type of heater will work better for you. Heat pumps, for instance, are an extremely popular choice, combining the functions of a heater and an air conditioner by using the same basic system of cycling refrigerant that normal air conditioners use.
Here are 3 reasons to replace your furnace with a heat pump:
- Improved efficiency. Heat pumps don’t actually generate heat. They simply exchange it with the cycling refrigerant. Because of that, they don’t cost nearly as much to run as electric furnaces do, which can save you a great deal of money in monthly costs.
- Versatility. Heat pumps work as both heaters and air conditioners, which means you can use them in the summer just as readily as you do in the winter. That saves you space and time, making for a more convenient way to keep your house comfortable no matter what the time of year.
- Ease of service.B Because you only have one system for heating and cooling, you should have it tuned up twice a year. However, having only one system means you will probably have fewer repair costs than if you had a separate furnace and air conditioner. You also will only need to do the same things to maintain your system year round, like changing the air filter and keeping the outdoor unit clear of debris. No need to learn how to maintain two separate systems!
