Heat pump technology has advanced significantly in recent years to become even more efficient and has grown in popularity in Virginia -- and for good reason! An air source heat pump can provide heat and air conditioning for your whole home, using electricity as its energy source. Since heat pumps simply move thermal energy and their lowest operating temperature is -4°F, Virginia’s climate is perfectly suited to using them for effective heating and air conditioning.
Different Types of Heat Pumps
All types of heat pumps offer an energy efficient alternative to air conditioners and furnaces, however, there are some differences between the kinds of heat pumps on the market:
Traditional air source heat pumps require ductwork, carrying heated or cooled air throughout the entire home.
Ductless or mini split heat pumps don’t require ductwork, but are only able to condition the air in a limited area, meaning larger homes would require several units.
Geothermal heat pumps need ducts and can work under any conditions, as long as a geothermal energy source is present.
The Benefits of Heat Pumps
Upgrading to a heat pump to heat and cool your home provides you with many benefits. These include:
Providing a whole-home heating and cooling solution
Enhancing home comfort with even temperatures
Enabling greater energy savings
Providing better home dehumidification than with standard central air conditioners
