Heat Pumps are Perfect for Mild Winters

December 19, 2018

The climate in Georgia is fairly mild, but when the nights get cool or even cold in your Columbus, Georgia, home, you will want a heat pump to keep the chill off. One of the benefits of having a heat pump is that it can both cool and heat your home. Let’s take a look at why heat pumps are the perfect choice for areas with relatively mild winters.

Energy Efficient

Heat pumps do not use energy to create warm or cool air, they transfer air from the outside to the inside and vice versa. Heat pumps extract heat from the outside air and transfer the warm air into your home, heating it. Heat pumps are optimal for mild climates where the temperature rarely drops below 30 degrees Fahrenheit, and they use little energy to extract and transfer the warm air. For the most efficient heat pump, look for ones that are Energy Star® qualified and have a high SEER rating.

Save Money on Energy Bills

Because the heat pump is only transferring or exchanging air, it uses less electricity than a standard air conditioner and furnace use. Investing in a heat pump will save you money on energy bills for years to come. 

Less Expensive to Maintain

With a heat pump, you have only one unit to maintain as opposed to having to maintain an air conditioning system and a furnace. It is far more economical to service just one system. In addition, because heat pumps only use electricity, there is no need to deal with gas or oil that is used in traditional furnaces. You will save money on maintenance costs as well as fuel bills.

All heat pumps do require regular maintenance to keep them running in top condition, and by investing in a maintenance plan with us, your heat pump will be serviced regularly and in a timely manner keeping it running efficiently for years.
