Heat Pumps are a Low-Energy Alternative to Furnaces and Air Conditioners for All Climates.
Just like refrigerators, heat pumps use electricity to transport heat from a cool space to a warm space, cooling cool spaces and warming warm ones. Heat pumps carry heat from the cool outdoors into your warm home during the heating season and vice versa. They efficiently generate the right temperatures for your home by transferring heat rather than generating it.
Heat Pump Systems
Ducted Air-Source Heat Pumps
Ducts connect three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. They draw heat from the air, water, or ground outside your home and focus it for use inside.
The air-source heat pump is the most prevalent type of heat pump, and it transfers heat between your home and the outside air. When compared to electric resistance heating, such as furnaces and baseboard heaters, today’s heat pumps can help you save up to 50% on heating costs. High-efficiency heat pumps also dehumidify better than typical central air conditioners, resulting in lower energy consumption and greater cooling comfort throughout the suffocating summer months. Air-source heat pumps have been utilized in practically all parts of the United States for many years, although they have not been used in locations that endured extended periods of subfreezing temperatures until recently. Air-source heat pump technology has evolved to the point where it now provides a viable space-heating alternative in Chicagoland’s freezing climate.
Geothermal Energy Heat Pumps
Geothermal (ground-source or water-source) heat pumps are more efficient since they transmit heat between your home and the earth or a nearby water source. Geothermal heat pumps, while more expensive to install, have low operating costs because they take advantage of relatively stable ground or water temperatures. Geothermal heat pumps have several significant benefits. They may cut energy consumption by 30% to 60%, control humidity, are strong and reliable, and can be used in a wide range of houses. The size of your property, the subsoil, and the terrain will all influence whether a geothermal heat pump is right for you. Ground-source or water-source heat pumps can be used in harsher conditions than air-source heat pumps, and customer satisfaction is quite high.
Absorption Heat Pumps
The absorption heat pump (AHP) is a relatively new form of heat pump for residential systems. Absorption heat pumps use heat or thermal energy as their energy source and can be powered by a range of heat sources such as natural gas combustion, steam solar-heated water, air, or geothermal-heated water, and so differ from compression heat pumps, which are powered by mechanical energy. When compared to compression heat pumps, AHPs are more sophisticated and require larger units. The lower electricity demand of these heat pumps is solely due to liquid pumping. Making it an ideal system to save money on your utility bill each month.
Benefits of New Heat Pump Installation
Incorporating a new heat pump into your home is one of the most cost-effective, energy-efficient, and environmentally responsible solutions to meet your heating and hot water needs. Heat pumps use renewable energy to provide heating and hot water to your home. This works by absorbing thermal energy (heat) from the air, ground, or a nearby water supply and converting it to heating and hot water for your home through a heat pump.
Because the primary source of heat output is the environment, the energy required to provide essential heating for your home is far lower when compared to other approaches. Heat pumps can also be combined with alternative energy sources to reduce the environmental impact of your heating and hot water while also lowering your energy expenses. Here are some benefits of a new heat pump installation:
Low running costs
Low running costs can help lower residential energy bills.
No need for fuel storage
A heat pump eliminates the need for fuel to be delivered and stored at home, a typical issue for homes in off-gas locations that rely on alternative fuels such as oil.
Heat pumps run on electricity (including alternative energy sources like solar power) and emit no pollutants, making them far more environment-friendly than typical heating systems.
Efficient in all temperatures
Even in freezing temperatures, heat pumps may run at high-efficiency levels. Only 25% of the energy required by a heat pump comes from electricity, with the remaining 75% coming from the environment via the ground, water, or air (depending on your type of heat pump system)
Because your home uses natural energy sources like air, ground, and water, the approach to heating and hot water generation is extremely sustainable.
Heat pumps are extremely quiet and may therefore be placed anywhere without generating any noise disturbance.
Heat pumps work well with both underfloor heating and low-surface-temperature radiators.
Heat pumps can be used as part of a home climate control system and readily interact with multiple controls, including smart home accessories.
Modern heat pump units have double the life expectancy of a traditional household boiler, with boilers expected to last 10-12 years and heat pumps have an average lifespan of 20-25 years.
Heat pumps have a strong design and few moving parts, so they require relatively low maintenance (annual checks are recommended but not required), especially when compared to the annual maintenance required by a standard boiler.
