Heat Pumps: Top Pointers

What is a heat pump?

A heat pump is a device that takes in the cold air from the atmosphere, and uses it to warm up your house. The pump makes use of the principles of refrigeration, and not fuel combustion to warm, as well as cool your home.

Why are heat pumps becoming popular?

Though heat pumps have actually been around for more than 30 years, they are being increasingly utilized today to fight the rising energy costs. Besides, the technological advances are now making them practical alternatives. The first heat pump that came into the market was noisy and broke down often. But, with the new technology, they are becoming more efficient in utilizing energy, and are reliable. This has made them extremely popular among the residential and commercial property owners. These pumps save energy more effectively while heating.

As the outside temperature goes down, the pump requires more energy to keep your house warm. Its effectiveness goes down, and when it reaches the balance temperature, which is normally between 30 to 45 degrees F, you need other sources of heating. At this time, you need to use electrical resistance heating.

Buying a brand-new heat pump will ensure you save your money in the long run. However, you need to figure out if the entire pump needs to be changed, or if simple repairs will work. Go through the user's manual that comes with the pump before making a decision.Lancaster Heating Repairs\n
