Why a Heat Pump Provides More Efficient Home Heating


Heat Pump Provides More Efficient Home HeatingLike many homeowners in Jackson, you would probably love to lower your winter utility bills without making sacrifices when it comes to home comfort. One of the easiest ways you can do this is by replacing your home heating system with a heat pump. At Environment Masters, we often recommend heat pumps as one of the most efficient ways to heat your home.

Understanding How Heat Pumps Work

As the name implies, heat pumps move heat around to change your home temperature. During the winter, heat pumps pull heat from external sources into the home. Air-source heat pumps suck in warmer outside air, while ground-source heat pumps draw in heat from underground. Since ground temperature stays more stable year-round than air temperature does, ground-source heat pumps use the least amount of energy to warm up your home.

Why Using Heat Pumps Is Efficient

A heat pump makes use of existing resources; it simply draws in heat energy stored in the air or ground outside. Very little energy is needed to move existing heat into your home. In contrast, a conventional heating system must directly generate heat by using electricity or burning fossil fuels. This results in higher utility costs.

Is a Heat Pump Right for Your Home?

Mississippi’s mild climate makes heat pumps an excellent solution. Most homeowners notice cost savings immediately. Those savings continue during the summer, when you can use your heat pump instead of an air conditioning unit to keep your home comfortable. You may even spend less on maintenance and repairs since you only have to keep one joint heating and cooling system in working condition.

If you want to learn more about heat pumps and whether one would work well in your home, contact Environment Masters today at 601-353-4681. We’re happy to answer your questions or schedule a consultation to help you choose the right unit.
