Save Energy With a Heat Pump
A Heat pump helps you save energy, lower your utility bills, and help the environment. They’re also quiet and they can last for up to 20 years. Heat pumps can be a bit more costly than traditional central heaters and air conditioners, but the energy savings make the extra cost worthwhile. They heat and cool your Houston, Texas, home more evenly, making it feel more comfortable and preventing drafts or warm spots. You can choose from many types of heat pumps to save energy, including air-to-air, ductless, and air-to-water heat pumps.
Air-to-Air Heat Pumps
Air-to-air or air-source heat pumps are the most common types. They transfer heat to the air outside your home in spring and summer and transfer heat inside in fall and winter. Many air-source heat pumps can also dehumidify your indoor air better than standard central air conditioners, so you feel cooler and more comfortable when the weather is warmer.
Ductless Heat Pumps
Ductless or mini-split units are types of air-to-air heat pumps. They’re similar to standard heat pumps, with one or more indoor units and an outdoor condenser or compressor. Instead of ducts, a conduit that’s about 3 inches wide connects these parts. Since ductless heat pumps don’t have to move air through leaky ductwork, they use less energy and your indoor air quality stays higher. You can hang the compact indoor units on walls or ceilings, or install them on floors. That way, your basement, attic, or utility closet will have more space.
Air-to-Water Heat Pumps
Many air-to-water or water-source heat pumps can heat your water along with your home, and they use pumps instead of fans. They work well with radiant heating systems that have concealed pipes to heat walls or chilly bathroom floors. This is called hydronic heating, and it uses less energy than many other methods.
