A heat pump doesn’t just provide a way to warm or cool your home—it does both! It operates so efficiently that it can help reduce your monthly utility costs.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) reports most heat pumps can decrease your electricity use for heating by about 50 percent compared to electric resistance heating like furnaces and baseboard heaters. Imagine the savings from this!

3 Ways a Heat Pump Can Save You Money

Investing in a heat pump is a great way to save money in the long run. Here are several ways a heat pump helps you do so:

  • Costs less to operate and reduces your heating and cooling costs: Heat pumps use less energy than furnaces and air conditioners, helping you save money on your utility expenses. On top of this, heat pumps cost less to maintain. With a heat pump, you only need to maintain one unit, not two!
  • Offers greater energy efficiency than a conventional HVAC system: Heat pumps don’t generate heat—they transfer it inside and outside your home to provide heating and cooling. This method offers an environmentally friendly and efficient way to heat and cool your home.
  • Reduces your carbon footprint: Gas furnaces burn propane or natural gas to provide heating. Oil furnaces require oil, which is an extra cost and also needs to be delivered. Unlike these other heating methods, heat pumps do not require fuel—they rely on electricity.

Benefits of Using a Heat Pump for Heating and Cooling

Here’s an overview of the advantages of a heat pump:

  • Provides both heating and cooling
  • Operates efficiently
  • Helps decrease your utility bills
  • Operates quietly
  • Reduces your carbon footprint

What Types of Heat Pumps Are Available?

There are several different heat pumps available. While each work similarly, some key differences may help determine the best type for you and your home.

Air-source heat pumps—The most popular type of heat pump is an air-source heat pump. To provide heating, a heat pump transfers warm air from outside to inside your home. In the summer, heat pumps act like air conditioners by removing warm air from inside your home to lower the temperature. Air-source heat pumps distribute air through ductwork or with an air handler mounted on the wall or ceiling—which is known as a ductless mini split. 

Water-source heat pumps—Water-source heat pumps use a closed-loop system to extract warmth from the floor of a lake or pond. For homeowners, you must live near a body of water for these systems to work. A water-source heat pump is an excellent and reliable method for heating and cooling!

Geothermal heat pumps—Also known as ground-source heat pumps, geothermal systems are incredibly efficient. These systems use a loop of pipes underground and harness energy a few feet beneath the surface where the temperature remains consistently between 45 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
