What’s behind the talk about heat pumps that seems to be everywhere in Suffolk and Nassau Counties, NY? Sure, heat pumps are super energy efficient, but are they really the wave of the future? At Home Efficiency Experts we can provide you with a little background about why homeowners are all abuzz about mini-split heat pumps.
Trending to Home Electrification
Many states, counties, and municipalities are laying out plans to cut their carbon footprints. The carbon dioxide emissions that result from burning gasoline, home heating fuel, and natural gas are a prime target for reduction in these long-term plans. The result is a trend toward electrification: electric vehicles and all-electric homes and businesses, often using alternative energy sources to produce that electricity.
All across the country, governments are switching to electrification as the means to promote a cleaner environment. And with those plans come incentives for switching to electric heating, cooling, and transportation. Heat pumps provide an easy solution for homeowners hoping to save money, increase comfort, and improve their home performance.
Enter Heat Pump Technology
Heat pumps have been around for a while, but it’s only recently that they’ve been able to provide efficient heating and cooling in northern climates. Their efficiency comes from the way they move heat from one place to another, instead of burning fuel. To cool, heat pumps remove heat from inside your home and transport it outside. In the winter, heat pumps extract small amounts of heat from the outside air and bring it inside to heat your home.
Additional savings come from the variable speed fans that adjust to just the right amount of power and speed to maintain a set temperature. Many traditional furnaces and air conditioning turn on at full strength until temperatures are reached then turn completely off, resulting in less efficiency and wasted money.
