Heat pumps are considered the most efficient heating system on the market. The principle of a heat pump is that it captures heat and moves it from place to place. In the summer it removes heat from your home to cool it, and in the winter it brings in heat from the outdoors to warm it. They are so efficient that they can sometimes produce four times as much energy as the electricity used to power them. They are great options for moderate climates like the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area. Our specialists at Vines Restoration, Plumbing & HVAC can help you pick the best unit for your property’s particular needs.

Energy-Efficient Features of A Heat Pump System

Heat pump systems are far cheaper to operate than traditional heating and cooling systems. This is because the units extract heat from the outside instead of having to generate it, and so use less electricity. They are also an all-in-one system, which means you can switch from heat to air conditioning simply by pushing a button. Desired temperatures are reached in only a few minutes.

A heat pump’s high efficiency means that it uses less electricity, which means they are more environmentally friendly. Heat pumps do not burn fossil fuels to create heat, and so do not create exhaust gases that negatively affect the environment. Because they do not produce harmful gases, such as carbon monoxide, they are very safe.

How Does A Heat Pump Work?

Typically, a heat pump will extract air from the ground in colder weather and push it through your property to produce evenly distributed temperatures throughout every room. The ground is the most consistent source of needed temperatures, but they can also be extracted from water or air. When your home becomes unbearably humid and hot in the summer, your heat pump will pump the heat out of your structure. No matter what the season, heat pumps make time spent at home more enjoyable.

Benefits of Installing A Heat Pump Unit

Efficiency: Heat pumps are highly efficient systems that can go years without having any issues. Because they utilize a renewable energy source, they will significantly lower monthly utility costs.

Monetary Incentive: After purchasing an eco-friendly heat pump system, you may be eligible for a heat incentive from the government.

Better Indoor Air Quality: Heat pumps do not disperse harmful fumes that contaminate the air inside your home. Heat pump filters can also filter out contaminants in the air, such as mold, dust, smoke and bad odors.

Safer Choice: Heat pumps do not use fuel, so this eliminates the worry of a gas leak or fire from your heating system. They improve air quality, lowering the risk of certain health issues.

Types of Heat Pumps

The two main types of heat pumps installed are air source and geothermal.

Air-source Heat Pumps

When heating, air-source heat pumps capture heat from the air outside, using refrigerant, and then release it into the home. When they need to cool the property, these systems use refrigerant to take the heat from the air around the air evaporator/handler coil and move it outside. Even in cooler outdoor temperatures, the pumps are able to extract heat from the air. Their efficiency does reduce if temperatures fall below 32°.

Geothermal Heat Pumps

Geothermal systems work in a similar way to air-source systems, except that instead of capturing heat from the air, they capture it from outside soil or a nearby body of water. A system of pipes, called the loop, is buried a number of feet below the ground’s surface, drilled deep in a vertical loop system or under the water. Circulating through the loop is either a refrigerant solution or water, which picks up heat or releases it as needed.

Geothermal heating systems are the most efficient type. Heating bills can be cut up to 70%. They’re safe and environmentally friendly. Cost of installing a geothermal system can be initially higher than other types because trenches need to be dug. However, this type of pump usually pays for itself with the money you will save in the first five years. State and federal tax credits may also be available for these types of systems, so check with your heating professional for information.
