Heat pumps are used to heat or cool living spaces and in some instances to heat water for general household use. In the recent past, heat pumps have gained popularity thanks to their unmatched financial and environmental benefits.
Here are some of the benefits of using a heat pump:
Heat pumps are energy efficient
Heat pumps have recorded some of the highest COP’s (Coefficient of performance) to date. COP measures the amount of power a device uses to perform its functions efficiently. For example, to achieve 2.5 kilowatts of heating and cooling power, heat pumps use less than one kilowatt of energy. This makes heat pumps over 200% effective in their performance.
Given their superb energy efficiency ratings, heat pumps will save you more money on your electricity costs every month. Also, heat pumps are not dependent on fossil fuels, which means they are not affected by price fluctuations. This independence means that you can effectively plan on your energy costs every month. The initial installation cost should not deter you from installing one since the long-term benefits outweigh the initial cost outlay.
Heat pumps have a significantly lower carbon footprint
Heat pumps are good for the environment because of their lower carbon footprint. They do not use combustion to generate heat meaning they have lesser carbon emissions than their counterparts. With the current pressures, the environment is facing they offer a formidable heating solution for a cleaner environment.
Improved air quality
Since they do not burn anything to generate heat, heat pumps do not produce any smoke or fumes. As air circulates in the room, the filters clean and purify it removing any odor, or smoke particles improving the room’s air quality. This makes them ideal for use for people
