According to, “For climates with moderate heating and cooling needs, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners.” Heat pumps function similarly to refrigerators in that they move heat using electricity, relocating warm air to warm spaces. Heat pumps can save you money on energy costs because they move heat instead of having to create it.
According to, “There are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. They collect heat from the air, water, or ground outside your home and concentrate it for use inside” with the most common type of heat pump being an air-source pump.
Overall, heat pumps offer a great alternative to your heating and air conditioning system if you are looking for something that will conserve energy and save you money. However, these systems are not ideal for areas with extreme heat or cold, because they can’t work as hard as traditional HVAC systems to heat and cool areas.
If you are interested in a heat pump system, contact your local HVAC professionals and see if this sort of system suits your home’s needs. At North Carolina Heating & Air Conditioning in Greenville, NC, we are happy to walk you through the pros and cons of such a system, and if you decide it’s something you want, we can install one for you.
