Is a Heat Pump Better Than an Air Conditioner?
Wednesday, February 17, 2016

The debate over heating and air-conditioning solutions rages on!

HVAC service technician

When homeowners are investigating their heating and air conditioning options, they want to know about three main factors: energy efficiency, comfort, and cost. Air conditioning systems might seem like the obvious choice if you are interested in staying cool this summer, but what many people don't realize is that heat pumps offer a versatile alternative that might save them money in the long run.

Here are a few of the most important facts about heat pumps as a cooling solution:

Multi-Function Means Year-Round Usability

Investing in a system that has heating and cooling capabilities is a huge advantage for homeowners. Central air systems only do one job, which means you have to deal with the added inefficiency of finding a heating solution, installing, and depending on that when the temperatures change. By investing in a heat pump, you eliminate the extra cost and frustration because everything you need comes in one convenient package.

Lower General Heating Costs with a Heat Pump

While the upfront costs for a heat pump are more expensive than an air conditioner, it provides more functionality and reduces costs in the long term. People in North Carolina know they can’t get through the winter without a heating solution, which makes the single-faceted air conditioner a less realistic HVAC investment. Heat pumps are one of the most efficient systems available for the heating and cooling market. The heat pump also has a better energy efficiency rating than air conditioners, making it cost-effective and eco-friendly—a double whammy!
