Perfect for warm-weather climates like Little Rock, Arkansas, heat pumps have long been valued for their versatility and great performance. Capable of providing heating, cooling or both, they’re adaptable to a wide array of applications. Thanks to recent advancements in HVAC technology, today’s models can save you a bundle of money too. Explore the design changes that have improved the energy efficiency of these adaptable comfort systems.
Compressors are the muscle behind HVAC systems that use refrigerant to heat or cool your home. They take the cooled gas and squeeze it tight, raising its temperature before passing the refrigerant to the condenser. New models with multi-stage compressors reduce the amount of energy required to get the job done. Running at full power only when cooling demands are high, they conserve energy while maintaining a consistently comfortable environment.
Design changes made to the motors that power HVAC blowers have also increased energy efficiency. Variable-speed controls allow the heat pump to adjust fan speeds according to your comfort needs. Instead of cycling on and off, the fan delivers continuous airflow at the ideal temperature. These innovative heat pumps cost less money to operate too. Because they operate at the lowest setting most of the time, they’re significantly more efficient than standard models.
Energy Efficiency Savings
From improved coil design to expansion valves that better control the flow of refrigerant, innovations have transformed the modern heat pump. Even the most affordable models can cut your comfort costs by 25 percent or more. Built to last, their long service life means you’ll save money on energy bills for many years to come.
