Electric Heat Pump Benefits

Heat pumps are pretty neat as they offer an alternative to running your air conditioner. If your home needs moderate heating or cooling a heat pump is a great alternative because it moves heat from a cool space to warm space, which makes the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

On average you save $1,000-$2,000 annually according to energy reports. On top of those savings heat pumps come equipped with filter systems so bacteria spores don’t have an opportunity to settle in your home. Heat pumps are extremely efficient in brand new constructions homes so definitely check out McKee Homes to find your next home with the electric heat pump already installed!

  1. Heat pumps can both heat and cool your home. No need for an AC unit when you have a heat pump—it will reverse the process it uses to heat your home in order to keep you cool during the summer. How is this process more efficient than a furnace or AC? Instead of burning energy to warm or cool air, heat pumps move compressed air from one location to another. So, in the winter it takes any heat from the outdoor environment and moves it indoors to heat your home. In the summer, it takes the heat from indoors and moves it outdoors.

  2. These are some great electric heat pump benefits that you have discussed here. I really loved it and thank you very much for sharing this with us. You have a great visualization and you have really presented this content in a really good manner.

  3. I loved your blog and thanks for publishing this!! Here you will come to know about the benefits of electric heat pump. I am really happy to come across this exceptionally well written content. Thanks for sharing and look for more in future!!

  4. I found it interesting when you said that a heat pump was a good alternative to air conditioning units as it could also move ‘heat from a cool space to warm space.’ Considering that many do not have that knowledge and in some cases find the use of air conditioning units impractical, your electric heat pump idea will definitely be gladly appreciated in many households. I will definitely give the advice to use a heat pump instead when I am called for that and when necessary.

  5. I really like what you said about how a heat pump is a great alternative for a home that needs moderate heating or cooling. My husband and I have a small home and want to have a nice, cool home in summer and the opposite in winter. Thank you for the information about how a heat pump moves heat from a cool space to a warm one, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer.

  6. This is some really good information about heat pumps. It is nice to know that it is an alternate way of running your air conditioner. I have been considering updating my HVAC unit this summer. It might be smart for me to consider getting a heat pump as well.

  7. Wow, I would have never guessed that you could get so many benefits from electric heat pumps. I am most impressed to learn that you actually save upwards of $2000 with them. That is very impressive and makes me wonder why you don’t see them on more homes.

  8. I like how you said that a heat pump can move air from a cool place to a warm place or vice versa. This would be super helpful for us because we have kids that are really picky about the temperature. We’ll have to look into this and see if we could afford it before summer rolls around and we start needing the A/C.
