What is a heat pump, and why should you consider getting one for your Southern New Jersey home’s temperature control?
If you’re experiencing heating that isn’t satisfactory this winter, then this blog is for you. That means that if you’re constantly cranking up the thermostat and finding that it doesn’t ever seem to reach the temperature you want, or if you can’t seem to make the heating even between rooms, or if you are afraid your old furnace or boiler is going to stop working altogether, then listen up! The Raynor Electric professionals want to introduce you to some home heating options you might not know very much about.
What Are Heat Pumps?
Heap pumps are devices that absorb thermal energy and transfer it to other locations. They can be reversibly programmed, meaning that they can both heat and cool a home! They operate on electricity and never burn fuel, so they’re a cleaner and more energy efficient solution to residential temperature control.
How Do They Work?
Instead of burning fuel, heat pumps draw thermal energy from the ground. The part of the machine responsible for this is the evaporator coil. From there, the heat is then released when the refrigerant condenses — this part is accomplished by the condenser coil. The direction of the flow of heat depends on the setting the heat pump is on: when heating, the pump takes heat from the ground and pushes it into the home. When cooling, the pump removes heat from the home and transfer it into the ground.
What Are the Advantages of Heat Pumps?
Well, for one thing, you don’t need two separate machines to do the temperature control for your Cherry Hill home! You can just flip between heating and cooling on a heat pump as the seasons change. But beyond the year-round temperature control, heat pumps have a number of advantages, including their cost-effectiveness, eco-friendliness, and reliability.
Dual Fuel Heating
The term “dual fuel heating” refers to when a home is heated by machines that use two separate sources of energy. The most common and efficient combination is an electric heat pump and a natural gas furnace. Imagine if you could have comfort in your home all year round at the lowest possible costs! It’s a no brainer.
