Can a Heat Pump Improve Your Energy Efficiency?

Maintaining good energy efficiency in your Conway, Arkansas, home is crucial to keeping your energy costs down and reducing your home’s carbon footprint. One way to improve the overall energy efficiency in your home is by installing a heat pump.

How a Heat Pump Works

Heat pumps work by using refrigerant to absorb the heat from one space and transfer it to another via a heat exchanger. Depending on the type of heat pump you choose, it will either draw the heat from the air, ground, or water supply outside and transfer it into your home. Since heat pumps move heat around instead of generating it, they are considered a passive energy source.

How Are Heat Pumps More Energy Efficient?

A heat pump has a very high ratio of energy output to energy input. This ratio is often expressed in the term “coefficient of performance” (COP). Domestic heat pumps often come with a COP rating of as low as 2 to as high as 5.7. The efficiency will usually decrease as the outside temperature drops, but even when this occurs, heat pumps are the only form of heating besides solar energy that has a COP greater than 1. This makes it the most efficient, readily available heating source for domestic use.

Advantages of Heat Pumps

Heat pumps come with a number of advantages aside from energy efficiency. They also come with benefits like:

  • The ability to heat your home faster.
  • Wi-Fi capability which allows you to control it from any smart device.
  • The ability to be set with a seven-day program.
  • Better energy efficiency to keep your utility costs down.
