Benefits of Heat Pumps for Your Home

When most people think of staying cool, they think of an air conditioner as their only choice.

Many homeowners are searching for a more efficient and environmentally friendly options than air conditioners and furnaces. At RB Heating, heat pumps are an ideal option for many residents. Ontario residents can beat the heat while also saving both energy and money – and while that’s possible with certain types of air conditioners and furnaces, products like ductless heat pumps and cold climate heat pumps may be a more viable option if you’re serious about decreasing both energy use and costs. These clever appliances work in both the winter and summer to move heat in or out of your home. By taking the pressure off of your other HVAC appliances, they help your furnace and air conditioners last longer—if you still end up needing either one after installing a heat pump.

How Do Heat Pumps Work

Heat pumps are innovative new appliances that can move heat either into or out of your home using the air outside. In summer, they push heat out of your home and, through the exhaust system, release it outside. In winter, the process works in reverse to push cool air out.

The true zero point, or the point at which there is no heat in the air, is well below zero degrees Celsius. Even on the coldest Kemptville winter day, there is still heat for your heat pump to move into your home to keep you nice and toasty.

Types of Heat Pumps

When looking at heat pumps, there are two main types to consider- air source and ground source (also known as geothermal). You also need to consider if you want to go fully electric or a combination of electric and natural gas or propane.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air source heat pumps take heat from the air outside your home and use it for both heating and cooling in the summer. These heat pumps are the easiest to install and, therefore, a more popular choice in Ontario.

Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground source (geothermal) heat pumps require the installation of piping into the ground. The main advantage of ground source heat pumps is their unmatched efficiency year-round, as the ground temperature remains constant. It is the most efficient and cost-effective method of home comfort.

Electric Vs. Hybrid Heating

You can replace your current heating and cooling system with one that uses electricity exclusively or a hybrid system that uses mostly electricity but relies on fossil fuels to supplement your heat on very cold days.
