We have been on a kick, discussing the ins and outs of heating and cooling efficiency, along with many of the factors involved in finding the system that is best for you and your home space.  It comes down to value and most of us consider efficiency a large part of value.  Migrating from heating, onto cooling, we have landed on the subject of the heat pump and will discuss it now in more details on behalf of your St Louis Cooling Sales near Maryland Heights MO.

The first point is that when choosing a new HVAC system, you’re not limited to a separate furnace and air conditioner. The milder the winters of your area, the more ideally suited to heating and cooling with a heat pump your space may be.  “In cooling mode, a heat pump works just like an air conditioner, using refrigerant to remove heat from your home. Unlike an air conditioner, it contains a reversing valve that can change the direction the refrigerant flows.”  This reality, effectively, allows the heat pump to heat your home by picking up warmth from the outdoors and literally carrying it into your home.

It has been determined and uncovered in our research on behalf of your St Louis Cooling Installation near Maryland Heights, that heat pumps are the most efficient of all electric heating systems.  In fact, if you currently use electric resistance heating, switching to a heat pump could knock 30 to 40 percent off heating bills. Heat pumps are also safer than electric heating methods that involve hot surfaces.  If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it’s due for replacement anyway, so now’s a good time to consider replacing it with a heat pump.
