Lower Your Energy Bills and Reduce Your Carbon Influence with Installing a Heat Pump
An electric device that extorts heat from one place and moves it to another one is called a heat pump. The heat pump is not a brand new technology; it has been widely used around the world for many years. However, these units successfully convert energy in the ground or air into heat. This process provides green, low-cost, energy-saving heating and hot water throughout the entire year.
In winter heat from the outside air is absorbed by means of an air-source heat pump and in summer vice versa – heat is eliminated into outside air to provide comfortable temperatures during both seasons. Even though the air-source heat pump is the most universal type of the heat pump found in Pomona Valley homes, ground-source (also known as earth-energy or geothermal) heat pumps, which pull heat from the ground or ground water, are becoming more popular.
Due to Pomona Valley’s mild climate the heat pumps can deliver continuous climate control for your home – properly heating it in winter and cooling and dehumidifying in summer. So you get both heating and cooling system in one package. The heat pump cycle is completely reversible – the ground and outside air always contain some heat (even thought it might seem otherwise but actually air at –18°C encloses about 85 percent of the heat it enclosed at 21°C). So the heat pump can deliver heat to your home even on the chilly winter day.
Recent studies have shown that if more homeowners used the heat pumps for heating and cooling their homes, that would considerably reduce global levels of CO2. The heat pumps would also become an excellent choice for those homeowners who would like to lower their carbon emissions and improve the energy efficiency at the same time. Not only are the heat pumps environmentally-friendly, they are also much cheaper to operate than conventional heating and air conditioning units. Your home can become more comfortable, energy-efficient and economical, if you decide to install the heat pump.
