Heat Pump Services in Northern Virginia
With another tough Northern Virginia winter looming, everyone is scrambling to find ways to stay warm without breaking the bank. At CentralHome, our customers are always looking for ways to beat the winter weather and still save money. One of most common answers these days is: heat pumps. For the uninitiated, a heat pump is a type of home heating system that uses a low amount of energy to move heat from a “heat source” like the ground or air and into a “heat sink” like your home. This device takes pre-existing heat in the air or ground outside your home and captures it for your personal use. We have a wide assortment of products and services offered that meet the needs of both residential and business customers. We are devoted to HVAC maintenance services and ensuring your safety and the high need for reliable heating.
Heat Pump Benefits
Contrary to popular belief, heat pumps can be a highly useful and energy efficient method of indoor temperature management across all climates. When it comes to energy efficiency, you just can’t beat heat pumps. Unlike other combustion-based heating systems, heat pumps simply transfer heat rather than burn fuel to create it. In fact, most heat pumps are typically a little greener than a gas furnace.
But Are Heat Pumps Still Worth It In Temperate Climates?
Yes! The answer is absolutely yes. Think of a heat pump as a supplemental heat source that helps your furnace to shoulder the heating season load. It’s an auxiliary heat source, so when you hit the heart of winter (below freezing) you don’t want it as your only heat source, but it could be your major one given you keep your thermostat set very low. A heat pump can deliver up to three times more heat energy to a home than the electrical energy it consumes.
Your heat pump can be your ace in the hole when it comes to rising energy prices. Since they use pre-existing heat found in the ground or air, they burn no fuel to generate enough heat to warm your home. Most new heat pumps have a “smart feature” that can tell your heating system to switch from your heat pump to your furnace depending on how cold it is outside.
We have some customers who have saved a boatload in winter energy expenses by setting their system to only switch on the gas furnace when the temperature outdoors is below freezing. Contrary to popular belief heat pumps don’t become useless once it gets cold out. Even when snow is on the ground and your breath is visible, ambient heat still exists in the air.
