Why Are Heat Pumps Energy-Efficient?

If you have traditional cooling, like central air, you may be considering a heat pump. After all, you’ve undoubtedly heard that it can be a great alternative—and more energy-efficient. But what, exactly, makes heat pumps so energy-efficient? Should you have one installed?

If you’ve made up your mind and want to discuss details, contact Arctic Air Conditioning today—or keep reading to learn more about the energy efficiency of heat pumps!

Why Are Heat Pumps More Efficient than Traditional HVAC?

Let’s start with how a heat pump works. To understand what makes this system energy-efficient, you first have to understand how it works.

How a heat pump works is actually fairly simple—it transfers heat energy from one source to another. For instance, in the winter when your heat pump is acting as a heating system, it extracts heat energy from the outside air (even in near-freezing temperatures) and transfers it into the air in your home. When summertime rolls around, it’s as easy as flipping a switch to change your heat pump to cool mode, where it pulls heat out of the inside air and pumps it outside to keep your home cool.

How is this more efficient?

  • Heat pumps move heat instead of generating heat
  • Heat pumps are powered by electricity, so you can save substantially on fuel consumption
  • According to the Department of Energy, properly installed heat pumps can deliver 1 ½ to 3 times more heat energy to a home than the electrical energy it consumes.
  • Because it operates as both a heating and cooling system, a heat pump can reduce the number of systems that require maintenance, repairs, and replacements—potentially helping you save.

Ready to Install a New Heat Pump in Your Central NJ Home?

It’s recommended to look at the EnergyGuide label (every residential heat pump has one). It displays the system’s heating and cooling efficiency performance rating, comparing it to other available makes and models. Heating efficiency for air-source electric heat pumps is indicated by the heating season performance factor (HSPF), and cooling efficiency is indicated by the seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER). More on these in another post!

If you want to install a new heat pump, get in touch with the team at Arctic Air Conditioning. Since 1977, we have helped homeowners throughout Monmouth, Middlesex, Mercer, and Ocean counties with their cooling needs.
