In our modern day time we have the ability to control our indoor temperature to a desired and more comfortable setting. Using the HVAC system has become a major feature in our homes and other commercial buildings. During the hot summer months we rely on our air conditioners to drop the temperatures within the building. In the winter we use our heater or furnaces to warm the inside. However both are costly. Where Nevada doesn’t often experience below freezing temperatures, Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning encourages that all HVAC systems have a heat pump. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning will explain why heat pumps are so beneficial and why they are so encouraged.
How Does a Heat Pump Work in Hot & Cold Weather
A heat pump is beneficial all year around. Its primary function during the winter season is to circulate the warmer air into the cooler areas of the building. In the summer, the heat pump will help circulate the warm air out and pull the cooler air inside those warmer places that the HVAC system is trying to cool down. In a sense, the heating pump doesn’t create warm or cooled air. Instead, it re-circulates the already conditioned air. This helps to prevent waste. Because the heat pump doesn’t create warm or cooled air and is designed mostly to recirculate already conditioned air to those warm or cooler areas of the home, it is more efficient. Installing a heat pump is known to reduce power consumption by 30% which adds up to savings on your utility bills. Heat pumps use electricity versus gas which is also a benefit to the environment as well as your wallet.
Advantages of Heat Pumps
One of the added benefits of having a heat pump is it helps save time in adjusting the temperature within the home or building. Since your heater or furnace and the air conditioning are two separate machines, they work independently. So it takes a while to either cool or warm the interior areas of the building or home. This will cause the furnace or air conditioner to work harder to adjust the temperature where as with having the heat pump help to equalize the temperature better will reduce the amount of work the HVAC unit has to do. Again, this helps with efficiency and saves time on either cooling or warming the home.
Good HSPF & SEER Ratings
For those who are currently shopping around for the right heating pump, there are two major considerations you will want to keep in mind. The first is the HSPF or the Heating Seasonal Performance Factor which is the heating pump efficiency. You should try for find one with an eight or higher rating. The second is the SEER rating which is the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. You will want the energy rating somewhere between a 14 to 18 start ratings or you won’t see the savings.
