If you live in a moderate climate, heat pumps are an energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. A traditional heat pump reduces your energy usage by half compared to electric furnaces and baseboard heaters.
They work by transferring warm air to a cool location. During the warm months, they remove hot air from your home and release it outside. They do the opposite during the colder months. The three types of heat pumps are air-to-air, geothermal and water sourced. Here are some energy-efficient features to look for.
A traditional compressor always works at full capacity. A two-speed compressor gives the heat pump a way to adjust it’s heating and cooling capacity. This saves a lot of energy, making heat pumps with this feature much more efficient. It also reduces compression wear, which leads to a longer life for the system.
Variable-speed motors are also called dual-speed motors. These motors power the blower, outdoor fan or both. This technology helps keep air flowing at a comfortable level in your home. It reduces the amount of electricity used by your HVAC system, making it an energy-efficient feature.
Honest Air Conditioning is a Mesa-based HVAC company that installs Carrier heating and cooling equipment with features like energy-efficient variable-speed motors.
This is a new heat pump technology that increases energy efficiency. A heat pump with this technology can recover waste heat and use it to heat water. It can heat water two to three times more efficiently than an electric water heater.
A heat pump with this technology has two spiral-shaped scrolls inside it. One is stationary while the other one spins around it. This energy-efficient technology can heat your home faster, saving you money.
