How a Heat Pump Can Save You Money
If you’ve been thinking about replacing your heating or cooling system, just for the moment, try thinking a little bigger. As in, what if you were to replace them both at the same time?
Well, the first thing that probably comes to mind is, “Won’t that cost me more?” Yes, it no doubt will, but not as much as you might think. And, better yet, you can recover the full replacement cost in the amount of money you’ll save on your utility bills.
How is such a thing possible? With GBT Heating & Cooling, it’s easy when we replace your heating and cooling systems with an air source heat pump. That’s right: one system that takes the place of two and provides just the right amount of indoor comfort all year long.
To the naked eye, the outdoor component (the condensing unit) looks a lot like the condensing unit of a central AC system. But that’s where the similarities end.
Heat pumps extract heat from the outside air – just like a fridge removes heat from inside itself. This heat is concentrated to a higher temperature by the heat pump and then delivered to your vents and, if desired, your water heater! In fact, if you opt for a heat pump that heats your water, as well, you’ll save even more on your energy bills.
If you’re concerned about its ability to provide heat on the coldest days of winter, a heat pump can still extract heat from outdoor air down to zero degrees F.
During the summer months, your air source heat pump will cool your house by moving heat from indoors to outside, just as your central air conditioning system does.
How much can you expect to save on energy costs? That depends on the type of heating and cooling systems you have now, but most of our customers save between 33% to 50% every year.
