Heat Pumps Year-round Comfort

Year-round, complete home comfort can seem like a far-off possibility when trying to decide which home comfort system is best for the conditions in Waterloo. Making that decision impacts not only your comfort, but your wallet as well, so making the best decision possible is critical to keeping your home comfortable for the long haul.

Calling it a heat pump can seem a bit confusing when the system actually takes care of both your heating and cooling needs, but could easily be the complete system you’ve been searching for. Heat pumps operate like refrigerators in that they use electricity to pump refrigerant to different rooms to transfer heat. The main differentiator between an air conditioner and a heat pump is that heat pumps transfer heat from the outside air and air conditioners direct heat out of the home.

Heat pumps can be the ideal solution for energy efficient heating and cooling year-round, and because it can provide both functions, all that is required is a simple change of the system’s mode. Because heat pumps don’t have to create heat, it makes them much more efficient as well.

 So how can you benefit from a heat pump in Waterloo?

  • Lower Heating Bills: because heat pumps run on electricity, they keep energy costs down compared to other methods such as oil, kerosene and propane.
  • Better Air Quality: being an all-in-one system allows heat pumps to filter the inside air all year-round.
  • Cheaper Air Conditioning: heat pumps can run more efficiently than most standard air conditioners, offering you cooler air for less money.

When the time is right to get rid of your current heating and cooling system, a heat pump could be the right answer for you and your comfort needs. When used in the right environment, heat pumps are a great all-in-one system that can handle your year-round comfort needs easily.
