The pleasant weather in Redlands, CA means that finding ways to effectively heat a home is often far from the minds of residents. And that’s one of the reasons we think you should consider a heat pump for your heating system. A heat pump isn’t only a heater—it’s also an air conditioner… and you know that there are long stretches of the year when an AC is essential for comfort. With a heat pump installed, you have your warmth for the occasional winter days taken care of at the same time that you plan for the long hot seasons.
Of course, heat pumps aren’t the only option for home heating available. What specifically makes them a good investment? We’ll look into that below. For more information about heat pumps, please contact the Redlands, CA heating installation technicians at Avis Plumbing, Heating and Air.
How a heat pump returns your investment
- The two-in-one solution: Since heat pumps work as both air conditioners and heaters, you will take care of two problems with a single unit.
- Improved heating energy efficiency: If you currently use a furnace for heating your home, you’ll find that a heat pump offers large energy savings. Heat pumps do not create heat the way a furnace does. Instead, they shift heat from one place to another. They only need a small amount of electricity to do this. U.S. government studies show that a family of four switching from a furnace to a heat pump can save up to 30% annually off their heating bills.
- More available space: Heat pumps are smaller than most furnaces, and because they do the work of two separate units, they take up even less space.
- Heating isn’t impaired in our climate: The only serious drawback of heat pumps—they lose efficiency at heating when the temperature drops below freezing—is rarely a problem in Redlands, CA. You won’t need to have a back-up system for when the heat pump cannot handle cold weather.
Heat pumps need professional installation, or else you’ll risk getting none of these above benefits.
