Low Running Costs
Heat pumps use much less energy than most heating and cooling devices, such as air conditioners and gas furnaces. Many homeowners use heat pumps with their air conditioners to boost their efficiency and lower their heating and cooling costs.
Note: According to the US Department of Energy, new-age heat pumps can reduce power consumption by 50%.
Easy To Maintain
Heat pumps are one of the easiest to maintain. Unlike HVACs that use two separate units – air conditioner and furnace, for heating and cooling a home, heat pumps use the same components for heating and cooling. Heat pumps are, therefore, relatively easy to maintain. Usually, it’s advised to schedule at least one heat pump repair in Las Vegas, Paradise, and nearby areas, every year. In high usage, one can go for two services every year.
While the name does suggest that a heat pump is a heating device, the fact is that heat pumps are used in both heating and cooling of any space. A heat pump has two modes – heating mode and cooling mode. During the summer, when the heat pump’s cooling mode is turned on, it helps cool a space by drawing out the warm indoor air and transferring it to the outside.
